Thompson says the song doesn’t follow the usual structure.
“Instead of having a verse-chorus-verse structure, the song essentially plays out as a ramble, wherein she tells an engrossing story about going out to tend to her garden, only to be stricken with some combination of asthma, allergies, and panic. She’s telling a story with life-and-death stakes, but she does it with a very charming, wry, matter-of-fact tone.”
