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."
