Songfacts®:

  • "Target" is a song from This Path Tonight, Graham Nash's first solo collection of new tunes in 14 years. The track was inspired by the singer's relationship with girlfriend Amy Grantham, a New York artist who shot the album's cover photo of him in Woodstock, New York. Nash told Billboard: "I decided I wanted to write a song about Amy, about my approach to her heart and put it in that kind of cupid symbology. So there it is."
