    For a first single, fine. She has range, talent, and potential. Besides, the last time AI got it right was Carrie Underwood–whom this reminds me of.

  • Jones

    The noisey, tinny and screeching sound made for a very disappointing debut. Not only does it sound like Jordan Sparks’ song, it sounds like just about every other song out there right now.

  • MultiPass

    Actually, not bad at all. I think it was a smart choice

  • Skye Hill

    Did she record this at one of those studio booths at the mall? Terrible.

  • Christina

    YAWN. Same thing she did on the show.

  • jared4ever

    Pretty but totally fogettable.

    • jared4ever

      forgettable*… Cause I know someone will make a deal about me spelling it wrong.

    generic song, cliched lyrics and dated production, sung competently. Don’t see this as being a hit, not a Top 20 hit anyway. I’ve heard it hasn’t gone over well when Pia’s sung it live at the Idol tour dates so far.

    Bunch of Morons posting on here. this is NOT a ballad. Go learn what you are talking about before making stupid comments. Just another bunch of idiot haters. Lets see what the sales are like, got a feeling a lot of crow will be served up here

  • EZ2XLR8

    She’s going to have to show a lot of skin in the video in order to sell this piece of musical flatulence.

    It’s funny how the same Sparklecow herd loves to follow Pia around and make the same tired old comments…while they were the one’s responsible for the horrible “winner” this season. They HATE beautiful, talented women who remind them of thier own failures…look at the hate they gave Katharine McPhee…of course she’s successful in spite of the herd…Pia will be too…lol!

    • Liz

      Yea, females luv to b*tch and moan about Pia. How dare she be drop dead gorg and have pipes like that! The b*tch just knows how to get under jealous haterz skin. Lol. Losers get a damn life stat. This is her first single, I’m trying to find it on Itunes. I’ll purchase the album also

  • Deanna

    …she was voted off for a reason….

  • Nostradamas

    No-one is “voted off” AI…just others who’ve developed fans get voted “for”…either way, Nigel never releases voting totals, so their plan to get Pia in the studio faster by ‘staging’ a “lowest vote dismissal” worked and they get to make more $$ on her quicker. It’s ALL about the $4 afterall…

  • Lorna

    don’t really care for the song, boring to me

    • Nostradamas

      And the “winner’s” total ripoff of George Strait…right down to the sound of the backup singers…is “interesting?” lol…

    • Brad

      Then why comment? What do u like? Or do u just b*tch about more gorgeous and talented females then yourself?

  • Dani

    I’d like her crosseyed!

  • Beth

    Unfortunately, the song is nothing special–just a generic type pop song. It does Pia no favors. Her voice, although very pretty–is kind of generic sounding as well. There is nothing really distinctive or unique about it. So, I think she needs some really great songs to showcase her vocal strengths and distinguish her from other pop singers.
