It's pretty. Not connecting with lyrics personally so having trouble really loving it but the melody and production is nice.

Her vocals are out of this fucking world. Beautiful. Her love for Matt is so lovely. I wish we had more vocals like this on the album as a whole.

Perfection! Obviously we love the high notes, but I really like the verses as well.

I also like the verses very much... The melody is so "warm".
And finally a love song from Xtina, her discography really missed that!

I'm still not IN LOVE with it, but I have heard the full albums twice only.

So far, the ballad of the album for me is Twice, but I guess this one will slap me across the face in a few more listens.

The vocals on this song would give debutina a fucking run for her money!!!!!!!!!!!!
Seriously, after the bridge she goes mental, she viciously murders any other pop star of any generation.

This song is going to be an anthem.
Whether she promotes it or not, it's just insanely good.
The gospel tune just makes it even better. Thank you, Christina!!!!!!!!!!

An instant Christina classic! The whole world should be listening to this masterpiece! This should be the next single! Perfect for summer weddings. It will bring a tear to anyone’s eyes.

I cannot get enough. I cant tell you how I've been waiting for Xtina to give me a classic love ballad and here it is.

No complaints.

I feel the GP would stan so hard for this. This is what we/they want from Xtina. And she can sing this song for the next 15 years at any event without it sounding awkward.

Fighter is the only time she ever released a song I stanned as a single and the video just sent me to heaven but 15 years later sis? It doesn't work at every event.

I wish she sang more Burlesque songs like Something Got A Hold of Me that lets her voice shine correctly. Those songs are universal.

Moving on, was UIWY rumored to be the first single at some point?

I hope that this isn't wasted. So much potential, I dont want another Monday Morning fiasco. I am in my mid twenties now, I dont want to still be complaining about Xtina choices in my 30s.

Imagine a Remix with Ed Sheeran.

Why didn't she enlist him? and Bruno and even Justin?

Anyway love this song. #1 for me

I personally like the fact that the song is just her. The song needs just her voice imo. She shines on this.

I wouldn’t mind if she did something similar to what Ed did with Perfect. He released it as a single first then later remixed it with B for the extra push.

For me its not only her voice but how she used it. Too much of a good thing can be a bad thing sometimes but on UIYW she really lets the song develop and build and the climax feels special. We experience the different layers of her vocals and the harmonies are sublime.
With each listen, I discover more layers and it is such a treat.

Even if she doesn't release it as a proper single, she should definitely give it a Save Me From Myself or Let There Be Love treatment.

Definitely my favorite from the album.
Her soft vocals at the beginning, her runs at the end. Blissful.

Still slaying me. This song just keeps giving and giving :cry:
People shit on her now because they have some sad life and jealousy. Those who celebrate her now are the true winners because you live in the moment and appreciate true beauty and talent while it is still here.

Ok.

I have totally 180’d on this.

I’m totally sold on this song now. Took me a minute. I mean, I’m almost in bits half way through.

WTF. I started balling in the shower just now to this song.

I didn't have this reaction the first several times I listened to this.

Like it just hit me all of a sudden.

Best song of the album. What we need is a nice cute video and a remixed version for clubs and we will get a top 10.

RCA DON'T FUCK IT UP.
