  • Lyrics
  • Michael W. Smith wrote this song with hitmaking songwriter Diane Warren. Released as a single from Smith's Change The World album it topped the Adult Contemporary chart for two weeks and also reached #27 on the Hot 100.
  • Warren doesn't do many co-writes, so Smith was very grateful for the opportunity to pen a song with the hitmaker. He told us how the collaboration came about. "I was on Geffen Records then, and John Coladnor, our guy there, set that whole thing up," he said. "And we seemed to hit it off and I got pretty comfortable pretty quick.

    "But, obviously, yeah, you're around this girl who's written all these great hit songs. And we got in the studio and I started coming up with this piano melody and all of a sudden we had a song. And little did I know that it ended being a #1 AC pop song."
