To be fair, it's a song for grown-ups.

You'll come around in a few years.

I have no words. This is surely the stand out from X6.

The melody, the B2B vocals, the instruments, the arrangements, the lyrics... Everything is just perfect.

The last 30s elevates the song to God level and makes it one of the best among her entire catalog.

I cried when I listened to it while reading how X and Ricky Reed wrote it together. It's so genuine and heartfelt - this is what we call true music.

This song is the fucking truth. It just gets to the heart. I agree this deserves Grammies.

Not sure if this is a hot take, BUT am I the only one who thinks that this may not be an ideal wedding song? I mean, the casual audience who don’t hear the full lyrics to the song will just hear her scream ‘I don’t wanna get married...’ and not here the ‘Unless it’s with you’ part.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a fucking next level love song. I had tears listening to it. And I feel every word. Just don’t think it’s an ideal wedding song.

I think this is by far the best Christina song I've heard since the Stripped/B2B days. I just can't stop feeling it. Makes me so emotional.

How could it unless she releases it as a single? Do you think she would? To close the era, maybe? à la The Voice Within?

I don't see it getting released as a single and it shouldn't

oh my fucking god, I am for the first time since soon long tearing up listening to xtina. This really needs to be put in a big wedding scene in a movie. It's so fucking perfect. And also very radio friendly because of the gospel and drums. Perfectionnnn <3

THIS! On first listen last night, this is the one that got me. I was crying in bed thinking about my man (while he was downstairs since I banished him from our room for my first listen :roll:). For sure my favorite song on Liberation, not even close to the others (and I love the whole album!) This is just a total standout imo, like you said.

There's something so old fashioned (in a good way) about this song! Ugh, it sounds like a old classic.

I wasn’t feeling this. It felt a bit cheesy and contrived. I’ll keep playing it and hope it catches on with me. Glad everyone else loves it!

In the beginning of the song, I wasn't really feeling it (because I expected it to be overly dramatic a la Right Man) but when the song continues and she starts going in, damn girl

Still a discography-killer, though. And a wedding-staple money-maker.
Mercy on me, no. But I feel it’s up there with The Right Man for me. And the song is sooo honest, making it sincere instead of cheesy which most of her love ballads fell short of.

Vocal build up in the end, classic Xtina

She snatched them and Sam Smith with this one.

It's my favorite song from her officially. It's just incredible.
