musician Lenny Kravitz
, released on his 2000 Greatest Hits
album. The song is a mid-tempo rock ballad song and won Kravitz a Grammy Award for Best Male Rock Vocal Performance
in 2001, a feat he had already achieved twice consecutively, with "Fly Away

". The song is about losing contact with a past lover and wondering if they will ever encounter each other in the future to give the relationship another chance. The single was a hit in the United States, where it reached number four on the Billboard Hot 100
, becoming Kravitz's first solo top five hit in nearly nine years, the last being 1991's "It Ain't Over 'til It's Over
", which peaked at number two.

), who works as a waitress in a restaurant/diner. At the end of the video, Kravitz goes to the restaurant to meet her again, but she is not there and Kravitz leaves. Soon after he leaves, the waitress enters the restaurant, not realising he was there to see her. Kravitz returns to his apartment, losing the chance to meet her one more time.
