  • Kiarra from St. Charles, MoIn the song, some of the girls have the same flower tattoo.
  • Eugene from Minneapolis, MnI have to disagree with, Ty, on the song being about a man seeking relationships with women that don't want them at the moment. How about getting the woman in the mood for some good loving tonight? Hmm? It makes sense listen to the record. "Tonight say you'll be mine.." or "Love hurts sometimes when you do it right". Sounds like he offering the lady some good old fashioned say "pecan pie", nice, rich and smoove!!!
  • Ty from Pittsburgh, PaThis song is actually about a man seeking relationships withy women who don't want that right now.
