Firehouse lead singer C.J. Snare wrote this song. In an interview with Rockeyez
, he said: "When I sat down and wrote that song, I wasn't thinking, 'Oh this is going to be a cool wedding song.' It was just a love song. Actually I was playing little solo gigs in a Holiday Inn somewhere. So it was just like me, my keyboard and a little drum machine. 'Late at night, when I was done with my solo gig, they'd let me come in and drink free draft beer and tinker around a little bit. So that's what I was doing and that song came out.'
When we brought the first album demos to Epic Records after we had been signed, we had another song completely for the ballad. So they were like, 'Everything is here! 'Don't Treat Me Bad' and all that stuff's in place but you just don't have that power ballad which is really happening on the charts right now.' So they offered to bring in some writers to try and help us out and I just remember raising my hand sheepishly and saying 'Well, I have a song.' So we played it for them and they absolutely loved it and it did become a big hit."
