  • Henry Kibirige from KampalaThe video tell it all its what i understood even before seeing Brandi's comment thanks neyo
  • Brandi from Las Vegas, NvThis song is about him explaing that you should never go to bed mad. That no matter what happens make up, because you never know whats going to happen. In the music video he wakes up in the morning still mad about the past day, and he leaves, hes walking down the street and a little boy runs in front of a car and he pushes him out of the way. He died. & in the video his ghost is talking to her. its very deep
