Songfacts®:

  • This song was inspired by the 1979 movie Time After Time. In that movie, H.G. Wells pursues a friend who turns out to be Jack The Ripper, and he claims sanctuary in a world of violence which he calls his natural habitat, hence "If I said I'd take you there, would you go, would you be scared?" >>

  • The Cyndi Lauper song "Time After Time" got its title from the same movie that inspired this song.
