  • Lyrics
  • This single was released immediately after Shayne Ward won the 2005 British talent show The X Factor.
  • Ward's single immediately hit #1 in the UK and outsold the rest of the Top 10 put together. It sold over 310,000 copies on its first day of sales, making it the fourth fastest selling UK single of all time. It was the second biggest selling UK single in 2005, despite being released in the final two weeks of the year.
  • Westlife considered recording this song as the official anthem for the 2004 Special Olympics, but eventually turned it down. >>
