  • Lyrics
  • Keys was securely into her 20s when this song was released, but she takes on the role of a schoolgirl experiencing her first taste of stark raving love. Keys appears as a college girl in the video, which was directed by Chris Robinson and based on the 1988 Spike Lee film School Daze.
  • The music is based on a sample from "(Girl) I Love You," which is a 1972 track by the Soul trio The Temprees.
