  • Lyrics
  • On this slow burn ballad Usher sings about infidelity and trying to maintain a relationship that's gone cold. about infidelity. Usher told Entertainment Weekly: "It's about a guy who makes a mistake and has an understanding with his woman that it's OK - but she really didn't forgive him. And trying to get her to get over it is like moving a mountain." The emotional strain of infidelity was a big part of Usher's 2004 album Confessions.
  • This was produced by C "Tricky" Stewart and Terius "The-Dream" Nash ("Umbrella").

  • Faye from Chicago, IlThis song makes me cry.. there is so much emotion behind it, it is hard to take it all in! In the music video, I can feel the pain in his voice. I think Usher has really progressed as a male in the entertainment industry and he is not singing about the things that he used to when he was younger...he's grown up. I hope it hits the top of the charts but that people see what this song is really about.
