  • Lyrics
  • This haunting ballad was written by Journey keyboard player Jonathan Cain.
  • This song was aptly titled as when it entered the Top 10 of the Adult Contemporary chart in August 2008, it became the first AV Top 10 entry for the band since "When You Love a Woman" dropped out of the upper tier in April 1997, all those years ago.
