Album: My December (2007)

Songfacts®:

  • Clarkson (from her record label's website): "The song is about this guy I was dating, who was so cool, but wasn't able to put up with me being in the public eye all the time. I want a real man, not someone who's going to walk around on eggshells and be a 'yes' person. I want someone to let me know if they're happy, mad or sad."
