"When we started the record, I was like, 'I'm never singing another ballad again,' but that came from the gut - it's the most honest, real thing I've ever sang. When there are no safe bets, that's when I feel my blood move." - Bruno Mars
"This song is about a special woman that I let slip away at one time. It's a happy ending though. I put everything I got into that one.'' - Buno Mars
''It's one of those things where even girls can relate to this song. Everyone makes mistakes. And I remember writing that and it's the simple things, the little things. Like, I should have bought you flowers; I should have just let you know when I had the chance. And that was probably the most difficult song to write just because you know I'm so naked on that song, out of all the sexual songs I'm singing about, that's the one I'm most vulnerable. And I think a piano and a vocal is the most purest form of music." - Bruno Mars
