"I did go through a very public affair with Eddie [Cibrian], who's now my wonderful husband," explained the singer-songwriter. "People who haven't been in that situation, I guess, look into the darker moments of things. I think a lot of people think it's done with complete abandonment and it wasn't. I call myself pathetic in the song and I loved that word because it was the only way I knew how to describe myself, because I was pretty pathetic."
While the song is specific to Mr. and Mrs. Cibrian, the 30-year-old star has found a lot of people can relate to it. "The chorus says, 'I don't want to give you back.' A lot of people who haven't been in this situation can relate because there's got to be a relationship in their lives -- romantic or not -- that it just kills to give it up. It's a very intimate look into a very rough moment in my life."
