Originally the song was intended to be recorded by Nikki Williams; she had penned the song two years before it was released by Demi.
Nikki said of the song ” At the time I was going through some relationship stuff, and I was just so depressed, so when I got into the session I thought, ‘You know what? I’m gonna pour it all out there, and get it off my chest “.
