This ballad was one of three new songs written for 3 Doors Down's "best of" collection The Greatest Hits
. Vocalist Brad Arnold told Artist Direct
the song "means a lot to me," before adding, "I think a lot of people will be able to relate that song to a situation in their lives. Everybody has someone in their life that they miss or face a situation they weren't ready for the end of. Sometimes, those goodbyes are hard."
