Album: Closer To The Truth (2013)

Songfacts®:

  • This sweeping-strings weepy ballad was penned by Pink and her frequent collaborator, Billy Mann. Cher described it to Billboard magazine as, "the ballad that all the women cry at."
  • The song is the closing track of Cher's 26th album, Closer To The Truth. The record begins with a selection of dance-floor anthems and ends with a collection of melodic mid-tempo songs and slower numbers. "The first half of the album are the songs that you play before you're going out to dance," Cher told Billboard magazine, "and the second [half] are the ones that you play after you've come home."
