'My Wild West' chronicles a 12-year chapter of Lissie's life spent in California and hints on her desire of a new adventure. The new adventure being her relocation from California to her newly purchased 10-acre farm in Iowa, where the video for 'Don't You Give Up On Me' was filmed. Lissie explains: "I loved the idea of filming this video on my land and we really lucked out when we hit record and the snow started falling. The fields and trees in white were breathtaking! Sitting in the back of my dodge ram pickup and singing as we passed these open glistening spaces was really special. It's all a bit of a dream and I'm happy to have broken the farm in with a video for a song that means a lot to me as I head into my next chapter.
Lissie says of her decision to uproot herself from the West Coast, "California and the West Coast weren't problematic and I certainly didn't struggle. Like any life phase, they had their ups & downs, beautiful and challenging moments. Rather, I felt empowered that I could leave and get out, take off, demand a new adventure from life! The song is a plea to God or to a person or to whomever to hang in there with me while I figure it out! There's a line in the song 'I left you on the coast for something only I can see' and that's just it. I have a personal vision and it may be hard for others to understand at times but I have to follow it!" An undeniably relatable sentiment shared by all fueled by possibilities and in hot pursuit of adventure.
