In this song Carrie takes back her apology for blurting out her romantic feelings. The American Idol winner wrote this with frequent collaborator Hillary Lindsey, Raine Maida, who is frontman of the Rock band Our Lady Peace, and his wife, Canadian singer-songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk.
This is one of seven songs on Play On that Underwood has a co-writing credit for, and a number of them have the subject matter of matters of the heart. She told The Associated Press: "This has been kind of my first attempt at love songs, and I think there's a reason for that. I think it's because I'm a private person anyway, and I'm not so great with emotions. I consider myself more boyish in that way, so I'm pretty closed off. But you know when you're happy in your life, you can just kind of tell."
