Background and inspiration[edit]

In a video interview about the song Medina stated that "[...] It's about meeting someone, he is unfaithful with his girlfriend, and I'm waiting for him to break-up with her, and he keeps promising me that in 10 o'clock or in this English version it's 2 am, he's gonna break up with her, so it's basically me waiting for him to do it, so him and I can be together forever".

Music video[edit]

The music video for the single was filmed in early August. The video premiered on September 5, 2012 on her official myvideo.de channel and a day later on the label's YouTube channel.

Live performances[edit]

Medina performed the song on September 1, 2012 at the box fight of the world champion Felix Sturm against Daniel Gaele, that was aired live on Sat 1.[1] She also performed the song on September 15, 2012 at the "SWR3 New Pop Festival" in Baden-Baden.
