Nicky Byrne of Westlife commented on this Connor Reeves and Jonathan Shorten penned tune: "There is great harmonies on the song. It's kind of slightly R&B I suppose but brought more, obviously Westlife singing, it's more, you know, brought to pop domain. We recorded it with Martin Terefe who is a producer from Sweden who did... James Morrison."
