This 5 disc box set includes Carly's first five studio albums. The song is centered on the phrase "Why does your love hurt so much?", and Simon sings perhaps one of her most heartfelt and yearning vocals to date on the track.

A promotional video was made for the single that is currently viewable on Simon's YouTube page. The song, like the rest of the soundtrack, was produced by Bernard Edwards and Nile Rodgers of Chic. This was a move away from the usual guitar-based hits of Simon's past
