The Guardian Songfacts says. Alanis Morissette married rapper Mario "MC Souleye" Treadway on May 22, 2010, in a private ceremony at their Los Angeles home. Seven months later the singer gave birth to their first child, Ever Imre. Her new status as a married mother informed Guardian's lyrics - "I'll be your keeper for life as your guardian. I'll be your warrior of care, your first warden," Morissette sings.

You who soldiered through the profane
They were distracted and shut down

  • A notable exception on an otherwise mediocre (if that) album. This song is actually pretty good, though still not the level of Alanis' older stuff.
  • still brilliant after all these years
  • saw this at her mda performance.....beautiful song for a beautiful cause.
  • Uplifting.
  • This came out days after my grandmother passed, and it was so timely and eerie I just looked up at the sky and said, "I love you too."
  • She has been on both sides of anger and happiness, still beautiful and talented!
  • Is it just me or does the line 'the greatest honour of all' sound a lot like 'the greatest stoner of all? It would be quite fitting, Alanis is all for the natural benefits of cannabis.
  • Beautiful. Be my Angel.
  • "Duble love" this song!
