The Song’s Content
“She Was” is a story of a woman who was asked many times in her life about certain questions if she was ready to do it. She was asked if she was certain that the man she was going to marry is the man she will spend the rest of her life with, and she was sure about it. When she was asked if she wanted to have children, she was certain about it. The song ended with a sad ending. The woman in the song grew old and eventually died. When her son asked her if she was sure that she is ready to let go of her life, she was certain about it too.
