Album: Seal 6: Commitment (2010)

Songfacts®:

  • This string-laden ballad about love, family and commitment is the first single off English soul and R&B singer-songwriter Seal's sixth studio album, Seal 6: Commitment. Seal said "Everything about my life is fully committed. I've never felt more focused on the matter at hand: My wife [Heidi Klum], my children, the family in general, my own well-being and, of course, music and my career. Each one of these songs has personal meaning for me. I dug very deep and all I can hope for is that the music strikes a chord with people."
  • Seal and his wife Heidi Klum have four children and one of them figures in this song. Seal explained to Reuters: "There's a chapter in that song that is directly related to our first child, Lenni. If you listen to it, you'll know which one it is. But I try not to be too specific because it takes away the ability for people to relate and make it their own."
