Songfacts®:

  • This love song sees Sparks promising to open her arms to a broken-hearted beau. It is one of four songs on Battlefield that the American Idol winner has a writing credit for. She told Billboard magazine that on the album, "I don't know about; sex, drugs, rock 'n' roll, I don't know about any of those things. I just talk about things that are kind of universal - love, friendship, things like that. I think the world needs to hear some of that... something good and something happy."
