  • This Diane Warren penned song accompanied the British-German film Song for Marion. However, when the soundtrack for the movie was released in February 2013, it wasn't included as it was being saved for Dion's Loved Me Back To Life album.
  • Warren has been working with Dion since the early 1990s and has written over a dozen singles for her, including "Because You Loved Me" and "If You Asked Me To." The songwriter played Dion an early version of the song after one of the singer's Vegas shows in 2011, with the intention of recording it that week during the Canadian's time off. Despite her busy schedule, Dion remained committed to nailing the perfect take in the studio. "Here's what's so impressive about working with Celine, what separates the good from the great," Warren told Billboard magazine. "I went to her show, and it's almost two hours. She's not lip-synching. She's singing songs that aren't easy to sing. Then we went in the studio at 11:30 at night and she stayed until, like, 4 a.m. and would not leave until it was perfect. I kept thinking, 'That's why she's going to be around forever.' A lot of times you work with singers and they're like, 'Aw, I'll finish next time.' She just came from two hours onstage and then really sang her ass off. Not that she needed to - she got it right the first time. There's too few people like that."
