George Michael wrote this song in memory of his Brazilian partner, Anselmo Feleppa, whom he had met during a performance at the Rock in Rio II Festival in Rio de Janeiro in 1991 and who died tragically only two years after. George said once that he had never felt real love until he met Anselmo. That's why he dedicated this song and the whole album Older to his lost boyfriend. (thanks, Sascha - Stuttgart, Germany)
