  • Lyrics
  • This introspective piano based power ballad finds a despairing Gary LeVox conveying the pain of a broken relationship. "Tonight your memory burns like a fire," he sings. "With every one it grows higher and higher."
  • Songwriting credits go to Sean McConnell, Johan Fransson, Tim Larsson and Tobias Lundgren. Singer-songwriter Sean McConnell has had songs cut by artists ranging from pop rock act Plain White Ts to Nashville stalwarts Tim McGraw and Brad Paisley.

    Johan Fransson, Tim Larsson and Tobias Lundgren make up the production/writing team, Play Production who are based in Örebro, Sweden. Their other credits include "Who I Was Born To Be," which was the only original composition on Susan Boyle's best-selling I Dreamed a Dream album.
