  • Igleasias told Ryan Seacrest that he can identify with the song's meaning: "I don't know why we do that. I think both girls and guys, we do that to ourselves," he said. "But it's happened to all of us and it's a story we can all relate to... and you think you've learned your lesson and it can happen over and over and over again."

    "The way I look at music and write songs," Iglesis added, "it's like when you go to the movies, and some songs are more real and some songs are more fantasy."
