Ashley co-wrote this ballad with American Idol judge Kara DioGuardi.
Ashley told OK magazine that on Guilty Pleasure, "there's a lot of break-up songs from stuff I experienced." She added that this is the most personal one, and it, "is about when you're in a relationship and you say 'If I really needed you, would you actually be there?'"
Ashley told MTV News that this is her favorite track on Gulty Pleasure. The actress/singer added that she worked with DioGuardi on her debut album but the pair finally got around to writing a song together for this set. She explained: "You know, we tried writing on the first [album], but I was so new to it and I was just learning about myself as an artist. I could tell I grew as an artist, not only in my vocal but also in my writing, because on the second [album], when we got together... and then we wrote a song together. She definitely knows what she's talking about. She's definitely a little headstrong and I am too. I look up to her."
Chelsea from Peoria, AzOne of my favorite songs from my favorite role model!
Ivy from Springfield, NeWow she has definitely matured! I'm glad to hear she's lost the "squeakiness" that she sings with in all the high school musicals. The song is a bit . . . traditional . . . you know, an acoustic intro, chorus, second verse with drums, chorus, climax, and then the chorus a few times with her vocalizing over it. I like the way she portrays the message though. 8/10!
