This was written by Holly Knight along with Nick Gilder of "Hot Child In The City
" fame. With the battle/love theme, the song is similar to Pat Benatar's "Love Is A Battlefield
," which Knight also wrote. She told Songfacts
: "I've had people come up to me over the years time and time again, the deepest darkest bands with every piercing and possible tattoo on them, and they're like, 'Dude, that song was so good, I want to re-cut that song.'"
