Album: FaithReleased: 1987Charted:
The song is about loving someone in every aspect; wanting to be that everything to his object of affection. The song contains haunting but very sensual lyrics.
Michael wrote this song before his homosexuality was public knowledge. The lyrics are ambiguous, and likely about a man. The video, which starred model Tania Coleridge as his love interest, portrayed the song as being about a heterosexual relationship.
Michael directed the video with Andy Morahan, who also worked on the videos for "Faith
," "I Want Your Sex
" and "Monkey
." Michael and Morahan won the award for Best Direction in a Video for "Father Figure" at the 1988 MTV Video Music Awards.
