Songfacts®:

  • Janet Jackson on her record label's website: "It was written and produced by Jermaine (Jermaine Dupri her boyfriend and head of urban music at Island). When I read the lyrics by Jermaine and Johnta Austin, I couldn't help but cry. The more I thought about the story, the more I saw how it reveals another aspect of positive discipline, especially as it relates to relationships. The song says that we can't stop trying just because we hit rough times. It's not too late; we can't give up on our fate; we can't let go of that discipline that allows us to work through problems and find a way to the wonders that come with open and honest love."
