You Never Say It First

Album: Madonna Nash (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • In a December 2011 interview with Billboard, Madonna Nash said of this song: "I wrote that with my husband. I was definitely in that situation with someone in a relationship, where you thought you were giving everything to someone, and you were always the one to say I love you. Then, they do, and you're thinking 'Do you really mean it, or are you just saying that in response to me?'"
