'Twenty Years From Now', a song that she wrote as a prayer for her six-year-old daughter was premiered by Billboard and Harris had said that this was the most important song she had ever written. Speaking of the song, she had earlier said, "It scared me thinking that it was totally possible I could be gone before my daughter reaches that point. I want to meet my kid’s kids. Getting to the age your parents were when you were a child brings a whole lot of perspective."
