“White Houses” is structured around a 4/4 time signature which Blender magazine has described as “bright” and “un-girly”, and is backed by an orchestral arrangement that PopMatters magazine said “would make Jim Steinman blush”. Carlton said of the song: “It's about jealousy, it's about losing your virginity, it's about living on your own. It's a story that most people can relate to ... It's really the journey of one girl and her perception of her environment and how she starts out as a wide-eyed person, but everyone gets hardened by life, but not necessarily to the point where you can't feel anymore.” She has also said it is about “rites of passage.” “White Houses” was the first song Carlton and Jenkins wrote together, and Lindsey Buckingham of the band Fleetwood Mac played acoustic guitar on the track after Jenkins met Buckingham, who was recording in the same building as Carlton, and invited him to listen to the song. Carlton said, “he just came in, played this great riff, recorded it and then he left. It all happened very fast, and turned out amazing.” The song provided the inspiration for a charity project, Building White Houses. It began on November 9, 2004 and ended on December 31, 2005. Its aim was to raise money for Habitat for Humanity International.
