To me this is probably her most underrated song. It showcases her voice perfectly. It's a Shane Rca wouldn't release and promote it.

You don’t want to know how much you’ve made my day or week or month or even year.
This song was a screaming fall or winter hit for her. The album may not have been what her label wanted but this song was aligned to what they’d want out of her; a commercial hit :cry:

A flawless song taken from her strongest record. This should have been massive; it's absolutely criminal that this is the hit that never was.

For me, it was one of the few digestible songs when I first played My December. As the rest of the album grew on me, this managed to retain all of the beauty that made it an early favourite. The bridge is so overwhelming. :cry:
Franklin’s music profoundly touched and changed the world, because over and over it offered that bridge to salvation, to freedom.

Thank you soooooo much! This song and album as a whole has always been underrated and deserved so much better. Brilliant and beautiful. Will always be miffed this never got a fair shot.

I a,ways pictured a video where she was walking along the side of a small street that had small coffee shops and tables outside and it’s snowing (and she has a red hoodie on) :oops:

Haha I always picture music videos for songs. It's how I try and fall asleep at night.

Nice to see so much support for the song tbh

I adore this song and it’s definitely one of Kelly’s best, but it has zero hit potential. At least it’s become a real fan favourite, always her most requested song for the fan request section of her tours.

I disagree. Some of her biggest hits have been ballads. I don't see why this would be any different.
