Kravitz wrote this about actress Lisa Bonet. They had broken up and he was trying to reconcile their relationship. They were married from 1989-1991 and had a daughter, Zoe.
Kravitz and Bonet did not get back together, but they are now good friends.
This was the first big hit for Kravitz. He had a minor hit in 1989 with his first single, "Let Love Rule" off the LP of the same name. (thanks, chet - saratoga springs, NY)
The song was heavily inspired by the Motown sound and by Earth, Wind & Fire. The horn section at the end is played by the brass section of Earth, Wind & Fire.
Kravitz played all the instruments on this track except the strings and horns. (thanks, Martin - Rostock, Germany, for above 2)
