indescribably bad - a truly awful dirge of a song
******
Another song that offered something different on the charts at the time other than R&B and pop. Awsome film clip aswell.

This song is addictive love it. Watched the video all the time on the music channels and thought it was great. The song was in my head during a GCSE exam and I couldn't shake it!!
The song just connected with me and is still one of my favourites. It makes me think of someone special to me.

I had no idea Hoobastank had a top ten hit.

This is pretty good. I like this.

Great track.

A very emotional song.
*
Don't like this very much.

EDIT: Basically what HeadInAMuse said. A contender for the worst song of all time.

This really is just so boring and cliche-riddled without even a fleeting second of originality.

Truly awful and a complete waste of time.

2* -> 1*

Okay, I am guitly of plenty of eye-rolling, overacting negative comments of things I don't like (post-grunge, nu-metal, acoustic singer-songwriter) but I do try to be rational and objective and the circle-jerking of 'worst song ever' stuff is really kind of sad and silly

But I still can't put it any other way with this song, there is nothing at this point that could make me doubt the belief that this is, infact, the worst song ever written in the history of the human race.

There is not a single moment of originality, integritiy, convincing emotion, power, passion, style, invention, energy or grace in any of the 233 seconds of this song. It's so insipid and void of any character that it's not even impressively, memorably bad. It is defenite proof that he is not a perfect person, because a perfect person wouldn't write such an abysmal song.

By far my favourite single from 2004. It took a while but now I consider it one of my favourite singles of all time. Outstanding track!
****
It's a pleasant enough listen. I can thank this site a few years back for putting the spotlight onto this track more than I may have cared to notice. Now, a few more years on, I find this is about where I always should have rated the song. Not amazing, not awful (perhaps a bit whiny?), but a little bit better than OK. 3.7*
******
It's a fantastic song in the key of E major, and its chorus features the 50s progression (1645).
