Nickelback continues to produce hit after hit, and still pleasing mainstream rock listeners. That is very difficult to do, especially with so many club hits and hip hop hits. I praise Nickelback for keeping their style despite fame.

Vocals & instrumentals : A

Rocking and fluid combination of bass, guitar, and drums! Flawless as usual. Most of Nickelback's instrumentals are always top notch, especially if their lyrics are lacking. Here, as expected, their vocals are pleasing to the ear. Passionate, ranged, and consistent.

Sing-ability : B+

Most of the lyrics are easy to sing along to, but there are only some sequences to follow along. The chorus is easy and fun to sing.

Lyrics : A

Despite some dark moments, the lyrics are generally very positive and optimistic about love. The main message of the song is that everybody has someone to love them.

Do you like pop-rock? If yes, this song is the definition of pop-rock, and you will love it.

Striking a near-perfect balance between grit and sensationalism, it takes viewers through a world marked by violence, double-dealing, and racial division, with an emphasis on the ambiguous morality and personal and familial baggage that come with a life lived between the straight world and the criminal one. The machinations of the characters and the twists of the plot are almost operatic, but the show remains rooted in the harsh realities of gangland.

What can I say? :) Nickelback says it all! But I wanna say there isn't a song that I don't like by them. This particular song is one of their "love songs" and I LOVE it! I'm a sucker for a good love song and this is a beautiful song. Nickelback seems to be mostly rock n roll, but even so, this song is all about love and having Somebody that will be there for you and love you! GREAT MUSIC! Thank you!

When it comes to what i consider the harder side of music im choosey about what i like. Nickelback is the happy medium. This is one of the only songs of the dark horse album that i like. Its got a message that says we need to be something because if we're not then we're nothing

Decent enough song without being too mushy but also well has some emotional tones to it that do make it fun to listen to and the way Kroger sings it it almost sounds deeply personal to him.
