Every women was for sure in situation, when she had a hard times because of love, that was never given back to her or a relationship, that she did not forget and that she would like to be in a life of that man again. This song wears a special meaning. Personally, the melody itself, took me over more than its lyrics and because of that the recording of the single was a real pleasure to me, even if the song really hard and challenging. If you will like the song as half as I do, my goal will be complete, because the song is written and sung with a lots of love,« stated Martina Majerle.
