Album: not on an album (2005)

Songfacts®:

  • If ever a song was written from the heart, it is this one. McCready co-wrote it with Tim Johnson in 2005. In May that year her then former lover Billy McKnight was charged with attempting to murder her. When a pregnant McCready appeared on Larry King Live, she said proceeds from its sales were going to Women Against Domestic Violence.

    The song was never officially released, although it has appeared on the internet. >>
