  • Lyrics
  • Paul Anka scored again after being below the radar for a while, his previous Top 40 entry being "This Is Love" in 1978. Here, a man is in a relationship that's dying, yet both are afraid to walk away from it. It was Anka's last hit. >>

  • Anka wrote this with another Canadian songwriter: David Foster. Foster's credits include "St. Elmo's Fire (Man In Motion)" and "Glory Of Love."
  • Peter Cetera from the band Chicago sang backup on this track.

  • Sara from Silver Spring, MdThis is from one of Paul Anka's little known albums Walk a Fine Line, done in a "west coast"
    style. Besides Peter Cetera, Kenny Loggins, Michael McDonald and Richard Page (of Mr. Mister also make appearances) It should be reissued one day.
