Released: 22nd October 2001.

An obvious choice for a farewell single, this is a downbeat ballad with lyrics that fit not only the boy/girl break ups they address directly, but perhaps also the bitter-sweetness the boys may feel at their split (aahhh!). Personally, I would rather remember them for "Keep on Movin'" - undoubtedly their finest hour, and a great pop track that many a group, not just those labelled 'boy bands', could have been proud of.

Since this is the last we'll ever hear of Five, at least in terms of new material, surely it would have been better to release a more memorable song? Instead we're treated to this so-so ballad which, to be honest, wouldn't sound out of place if sung by any other boy band (well, maybe not Westlife). Ironically, Five have always had a unique sound, so for this to be their swansong doesn't really do them justice.
