This song is about a divorced couple who every other weekend trade off the kids. The couple still wishes that they where together, and for 15 minutes they feel like a family again.
In the music video, Joanna García and Steve Howey, who were Cheyenne and Van Montgomery on the hit TV show Reba, play the roles as the two parents after the show had ended.

This was written by Skip Ewing and Connie Harrington. Ewing is also a singer, and duets with Reba on the single version of this song, singing from the perspective of the father. For the album, Kenny Chesney sang the father's part.
Sylvia from Michigan City, IndianaThis video is great! I only wish “Reba” would have stayed in production, it was a VERY GOOD sitcom! Now, there’s nothing but garbage on TV, and it’s not even funny! The cartoon “American Dad,” it’s NOT funny, in fact it’s offensive!
Christine Angela Campos from Evanston IllinoisI thought that the couple in the video was V man and Cheyenne from the show. I love them together on anything
Skyforme from Va;;ey Center, CaVery sad to have to put your kids thru this. I see my brother and his Ex go thru this all the time. Their weekends are RULED by these visits....
Cory from Olds, AbOh this song, and especially the music video makes me want to cry every time i hear/see it. the fact it's van and cheyenne makes it even more heart wrenching i think cuz i loved them as a couple on the show!
Until December 5, 1998, a song had to be issued as a single to make the Hot 100. Aaliyah's "Try Again" was the first tune to top the chart based on airplay alone, without any sales figures being included.
Michael Jackson's "Liberian Girl" opens with the South African female singer Letta Mbulu saying the Swahili phrase "Naku penda piya-naku taka piya-mpenziwe." There was some geographic liberty here, as Swahili is not spoken in the West African nation of Liberia.
