Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

This was the fourth and final single from Taylor Dayne's wildly successful debut album, which was released on Arista Records and overseen by Clive Davis. The first two singles, "Tell It To My Heart" and "Prove Your Love," were dance hits written by Seth Swirsky. Davis had Dayne record the ballad "I'll Always Love You" next, then followed it up with this song, which was written by Jeff Franzel and Alex Forbes. Dayne told us that she had done a demo vocal on this song for Franzel and Forbes, and when Arista needed songs to complete her album following the sudden success of "Tell It To My Heart," this was an easy choice.
This was released as a single a little over a year after the "Tell It To My Heart" single came out in late-1987, leading to Dayne's sudden stardom. In our interview, Dayne told us: "Within a year's time I was opening up for Michael Jackson, who was at the height of his career with the Bad tour. And I was on the road; I remember I never came home for about 15 months." Her next album, Can't Fight Fate, kept her on the charts for another year with four more hit singles including the #1 "Love Will Lead You Back."
