    She didn't write it. Prince did, and it's about giving up smoking

    It's about her mom. She wrote this song for her mom when she died. Due to her depression and sadness over mother's death she let her marriage fall to pieces.

    I believe it to be about her love for someone special and that nothing compares to them.
