  • Lyrics
  • The title track and second single from Christian music artist Britt Nicole's third studio album has an uplifting message. "The song is all about knowing your worth," she told Radio.com. "I wrote the song on a day when I was having a bad day. I wasn't feeling confident in who I was. You know those days when you listen to all the negative kind of thoughts about yourself... Not only was I feeling that way, I was getting a lot of messages from fans who were writing letters and coming up to me at the shows saying, 'I'm being bullied in school. My parents are walking through a divorce. I'm struggling with cutting or an eating disorder.' All these different, really big issues that my fans were telling me, 'I'm dealing with these things.'"
  • The song quickly became a favorite among Britt's fans, who took to showing up for her concerts wearing gold crowns.
