This piano-based song finds a vulnerable K. Michelle grappling over a long-distance affair in which there are communication issues:
I love him, but I never call Maybe that's my flaw Maybe that's why I ain't got a man 'cause I be doing too much thinking
The tender lyrics are inspired by an actual relationship. Michelle explained to Billboard magazine: "I was dating someone for eight months and that was his situation. He was long distance, he had a child on the way and I was led to believe that after this child was born that we would have a chance to fully be together. And as a woman, I preach to women about, 'You can't be second and you better tell the man what you think" and all of that, and it's amazing how you can look up and you're one of those women."
"I built my career on being honest with my fans," Michelle added. "So if I ever find myself in a situation that I'm not proud of, I don't plan on lying about it. I don't plan on hiding it. So that was actually the first record I wrote for this album and I was so f---ed up mentally. That song was my way of saying 'we need to stop talking.' I was being so stubborn like, I'm not going to do this because it's real life what I'm going through."
The whole of the Anybody Wanna Buy a Heart? album is about one person. Michelle told The Boombox regarding the mystery man. "I sent all these songs to him. He said, 'This is sad it has come to this.'"
