Singer Rob Harvey explained this song, which is the album's title track, on his record label's website: "It's about standing strong, being comfortable with your self and realizing there is a future, there is something to look forward to. A lot of the album is about personal, mental battles. Not giving in to the negative thoughts."
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.
