Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from Canadian singer Justin Bieber's debut album, My World.
  • This song, which Justin co-wrote, is about how his parents marriage ended when he was young. He explained to Billboard magazine: "It's a ballad about the feelings I had when my parents split up and how I helped my family get through it. I think a lot of kids have had their parents split up, and they should know that it wasn't because of something they did. I hope people can relate to it."

  • Elizabeth from Tennessee 37760this song is also easy for me to relate because i have been with 2 guys and we somehow never worked out and it hurts me so bad. so this is how I have been since then. I still am crying everyday wishing we would have worked out but we didn't so no biggie.:( he is living his dream. JB you rock.
  • Anna from Peru, IlThis song is reallly easy for me to relate to because thats exactly how i feel now. All Justin's song have deep meanings but this one, to me, has the most. it gives me hope i'll be okay after this is all over because it hapened to JB and he's living his dream now
