This ballad was written by Alex Francis, Jason Farmer and Keyshia Cole. Farmer also produced this track. His only previous significant production credit had been on Freddie Jackson's 2006 Transitions album.
This was the third #1 for Cole on the Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.
The song's video was shot in Hawaii and is based on the "Footprints" poem. The Leona Lewis song "Footprints In The Sand" is based on the same piece.
Cole told MTV News that she wrote this about her cousin.
In Gary Numan's "Cars," the message is that cars lead to a mechanical society devoid of personal interaction. This didn't stop automakers from using it in commercials. Both Nissan and Oldsmobile have used it in ads.
