Songfacts®:

  • Running to 4 minutes 10 seconds, this is the title track of Mindy McCready's March 2010 album. Co-written by McCready with Trey Bruce and Rachel Thibodeau, it was clearly written from the heart.

    At this time she was returning after an eight-year hiatus, after having a very turbulent time. Less than three years later she would be dead, after taking her own life in her third and ultimately successful suicide attempt. >>
