The Canadian band Saga released their first album in 1978. Twenty albums later, they issued Sagacity
, which featured this track.
In our interview with lead singer Michael Sadler
, he said the song is about "telling little white lies." Said Sadler: "Are you going to come clean or are you going to just let it slide this time? Which you can do at a certain point, but after a while you're going to have to 'fess up to something."
