Songfacts®:

  • This semi-acoustic ballad was originally a #7 hit for Bedingfield in her native UK in 2007. It was also a Top 20 hit in a number of other countries including Spain, Germany and Switzerland.
  • Bedingfield wrote the song together with Mads Hauge and David Tench. Hauge also co-wrote Pixie Lott's debut single "Mama Do."
  • The song was co-produced by longtime Madonna collaborator Patrick Leonard.
  • Bedingfield told CNN's Shanon Cook that this song was inspired by John Gray's book Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus. She explained: "The book is just all about how men and women are different and how we kind of have to explain to each other, because we're speaking in a different language -- how to love in the way that we need it." The British singer added that though in the song she's looking for Mr. Right, since then she's found him. In March 2009, she married Matt Robinson, an American businessman and documentary filmmaker.
