Songfacts®:

  • This song was written by Diane Warren, who has previously penned tracks for the likes of Cher ("If I Could Turn Back Time") and Aerosmith ("I Don't Want to Miss a Thing").

    "I was so honored to have this one on the record because she specifically wrote it for me," Lewis told Entertainment Weekly. "I've known Diane for a long, long time and I always wanted to work with her, but for some reason or another it never panned out. This time I was sure I wanted something by her on the record."
