  • Lyrics
  • This song was a moderate hit at the time of its release, but it showed great staying power, and it remains a favorite of the group's most loyal fans. It's quite the love song, about a man who is still waiting for the love of his life to return long after she walked out on him, and there seems to be hope that they will be reunited. The reasons for the break-p are never spelled out, but few seem to care. >>
