  • [p3yt0n} from Somewhere, InThis is a great song, simple as that.
  • Kelly from Houston, Txi was just introduced to this song by a friend who told me it reminded him of me and my relationship with my boyfriend. i decided to give it a listen and found that it was exactly the same thing. as to why he wrote it not so much but i just listed to the song and its alot alike. just wanted to say thanks. its a wake up call that ive been needing.
  • Dave from Cleveland, OhJust as an addition the above comment; Brent mentioned in an interview that he never wrote a song like this and it came to him very easily when he thought about his girlfriend. He wrote it for her saying something along the lines of: I'm not sure how to tell her how I truly feel, so it came it out in a song form.
