Iglesias either wrote or co-wrote every track on the album, and has said that for many of the tracks on the album he started out simply with titles that he later based the songs on. The first song to use this method was "Don't Turn Off the Lights", which was originally going to be the title of the album and the first single. "Hero", the most popular track from the album, was co-written by Paul Barry and Mark Taylor. Iglesias also stated that he wrote many songs for the album, but picked the ones he considered to be the very best.
