  • This power ballad finds Kelly encouraging the wounded man that she is attracted to, to take a chance on love. The singer penned the song with her guitarist, Aben Eubanks. "I love writing and singing songs about real life situations - especially about relationships," she told Reuters. "Everyone wants to feel like they're not alone in a thought. That's the best feeling I get, when I hear a song and it's like 'you just nailed me.' That's the coolest thing in the world, to write something that can be relatable to other human beings."
