"When I first heard this song I went to a place of PEACE! It forces you to think about nothing but beautiful and happy thoughts! It has so much soul!
"This one really does it for me! The bass line... The pen game (Songwriting, lol!)... her voice is perfect on this song and Bryan Michael Cox produced the hell out of this one! Definitely stays on repeat."

"I’ve loved this song when I first heard it.. crazy that I was just a little girl but the way Gwen sang those lyrics and when I saw the video I felt some kind of connection to this song ever since! It’s definitely one of my favorites. I think the dramatic guitar line and the build up gets me every time!"

"This Song is genius! The pen game and the melody is my favorite! When I write my songs I come up with the melodies first , so that’s the first thing that grabbed me when I heard this song! It’s always on repeat."
