Album: Resurrection (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Anastacia wrote this song about the end of her marriage to her former bodyguard Wayne Newton. "It's totally about the loss of my marriage, but it's a beautiful song," she told The Daily Mail. "I think I lost a bit of myself for a while. My career got so busy I'd be thinking: 'Who the hell am I?' I probably hadn't taken enough time out after I had my first cancer. I was probably fighting and proving I could get through it. I probably got through it too fast. I used to believe in happy-ever-afters. Now, I have a bit more of a realistic approach."
