  • Lyrics
  • Pop/country singer-songwriter Jessie James co-wrote this song with Josh Kear ("Before He Cheats") and Mark Irwin (Garth Brooks).
  • James told SingerUniverse Magazine that this is her favorite song on her debut self-titled album. She explained: "I love that one, production-wise, lyrics, melody, everything You can really feel the pain I'm going through. I was dating this rock musician at the time that was always on tour. And I was thinking, 'I bet he's doing all these things, so why shouldn't I?' So I went into a writer's session with Josh and told him how I was feeling about this guy, what was going on in my head. He started strumming the guitar and I just began singing. It just felt so natural, a really special moment. I've never written a song I didn't feel true to. Everything I've ever done is a true story. I feel everything I write. I can't fake it."
