McEntire told GAC about this cut: "It's a strong woman song. I'm sure there are tons of women who get the cold shoulder when the husband comes in from work. He's had a rough day and she's had three kids at home, especially if it's summer. He doesn't want to talk, something's going on and it's confrontation time." (Source Consider Me Gone Songfacts).
Every time I turn the conversation
To something deeper than the weather
I can feel you all but shuttin' down
And when I need an explanation for the silence
