This is one of four ballads on Overcome
, including the bonus track. Burke told Pop Justice
that the ballads on the album reveal the open and demonstrative side of her personality. She explained: "When I'm emotional, I let people see that. That's what the ballads portray about me, when I'm having a down moment. When I was recording this album, I'd walk into the studio with my diary and we'd write from that. I'd read paragraphs from my diary to the producer and if there was something going on with my sister or my auntie, I'd write about that - I refuse to sing something that I don't relate to, I'm sorry. There was a song where the producer tried to make me sing a lyric and it was too American for me, and I was like, "no! My audience won't get it."
