  • Brandy told MTV News, "basically what that song is about is forgiveness." She added: "Mistakes are gonna be made; we're all gonna make them. One of the lines in the song is 'I'm only human, I might just tell a lie/ I'm only human, I'm an angel in disguise.'"
  • Brandy wrote this song herself, together with Toby Gad ("If I Were a Boy", "Big Girls Don't Cry"), Canadian singer-songwriter Jenny-Bea Englishman and Lindy Robbins ("What's Left Of Me", "Inconsolable").
