An anthem of fidelity, "Keep On Loving You" is often cited as one of the more romantic songs ever written - VH1 included it on their Top 40 Love Songs
show. It didn't work out for Kevin Cronin though, as he and his wife split up a few years after the album was released. He re-married in 1992.
In a Songfacts interview with Cronin
, he said: "That song is a yin-yang thing, where there is obviously trouble in paradise in the verses, but I always believed that people are capable of changing, and that if your life runs into a tough spot, it doesn't mean that you necessarily have to run from it. You can also look it in the eye, and if there is enough worthwhile in the relationship to keep it going, then you give it all you've got, and that's what I did. Even in giving it all I got, at some point, we realized that it just wasn't going to work. So when I wrote that line, I meant it. I tried my best, but it just didn't happen."
