Songfacts®:

  • This was the title track and lead single from the American Idol finalist's sophomore album.
  • The song was written by R&B songwriter Johnta Austin (Mary J. Blige, Mariah Carey) and Theodore Thomas.
  • Yamin explained in publicity materials that this song "epitomizes what the record is really about - it's about love and fighting for it, with it, in it and out of it. I love the lyrics. It's a feel-good song that's very relatable. Everyone has been through a broken heart before and later found someone better - someone worthy of fighting for."
