  • Miles from West Linn, OrOnly comes second to renard's remix ;3
  • Chris from Spijkenisse, Netherlandsah the Mariachi trumppets are awesome!

    It is about a girl who is taking a wrong path and the singer wants reassure that she's ok with him. At least that is what I make of it.
  • Samantha from London, United KingdomI just love this song so much!!!!!! It reminds me of James Bond, but it's absolutely brilliant
  • Louise from Newcastle, United KingdomI've heard a remix for this track which is probably better.
