  • Lyrics
  • This song was inspired by Bublé's Argentinian wife Luisana. He wrote the tune sitting at the piano and it serves as a homage to the strength of women, and how much men depend on them. Bublé explained to The Sunday Telegraph that the song pays tribute to how Luisana, "helps carry me... How she shares the load with me. I was just thinking, 'You're always the one that pulls us through.'"
    "I notice the stability my wife has given me in simple ways," he continued. "In other relationships I would think, 'Let's go on vacation,' and the girl would say, 'Let's go to Hawaii,' and I would say, 'Who do we call, what couple do we get to go with us?' It's like I always needed someone else there. With my wife it's just... we're good together."
