Songfacts®:

  • Written by Pat Benatar scribe Holly Knight and Australian songwriter Mike Chapman, this romantic ballad was written for the 1986 rom-com Legal Eagles, starring Robert Redford and Debra Winger. The song, although considered the movie's theme, was not featured on the soundtrack. Stewart included it on his Every Beat of My Heart album, released the same year, despite calling it "one of the silliest songs I've ever recorded." >>
