rock began writing "Alex The Great" two weeks after she lost her car in an accident. "I really immersed myself in a lot of positive literature at that time to try to keep my mind in a good place, since losing my car was like a sudden break up of a fantastic long term relationship."
rock drew inspiration from her love life and a close friend's mutual misadventures, while at the time trying to stay positive. She says, "I don't think I would have been able to have written the lyrics to the bridge that I did. They are almost like an advice column that everything is going to be okay, even if I wasn't in the same place yet trying to convince myself of the same thing."
