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, you who smiled when you're in pain
You who soldiered through the profane
They were distracted and shut down
