Album: Lone Justice (1985)

Songfacts®:

  • This soul-saving song from Lone Justice's debut album is credited to both the band's bassist Marvin Etzioni and vocalist Maria McKee. However, Etzioni admitted to us that when McKee was working on the tune, "I just kind of helped out a bit. That was before the first album. But it was really her song."
