Asia featured an all-star lineup: John Wetton from King Crimson, Steve Howe from Yes, Carl Palmer from Emerson, Lake & Palmer, and Geoff Downes from the Buggles and Yes. This song's vocalist, John Wetton, left shortly after its release and was replaced by Greg Lake. Lake was an old band mate of drummer Carl Palmer. They played together in Emerson, Lake & Palmer. The group disbanded soon after Lake's inclusion. When they reunited in 1990, it was without Wetton. (thanks Kev - Scunthorpe, England)
Wetton and Downes wrote this song, which describes an intense relationship between a young couple, and questions what will happen when they get older.
This was the group's biggest hit. Their only other song to come close was "Don't Cry." That made it to #10 in the US.
