  • Lyrics
  • There are a lot of songs about missing an ex-wife, but this one has some very heartfelt lyrics. It was Ambrosia's first major hit, although it's not typical of their sound. >>

  • Charles from Charlotte, NcThe four members of Ambrosia all played on Alan Parson Project's first LP 'Tales of Mystery and Imagination' in 1976.
  • Barry from Greenville, NcGreat song and a find example of the multi-instrumental talent of this group. The violin underscores the sense of loss and longing.
