Songfacts®:

  • This was written by Bret Michaels, lead singer of the band Poison. In the liner notes to the album, Nicks said: "This song was just brought to me barely 2 weeks ago by a most extraordinary young man. One of these men who has everything - beauty, sensitivity, warmth, and a love for life that I had not seen in a long time. I recorded his song, singing it for him to the best of my ability, hoping that the people would love the song as much as we loved doing it. A new friend, in this business, who asks for nothing but for me to be happy is a very rare thing. I hope he will remain my friend for a long time, because finding someone like him seldom happens in one's lifetime. But when it does there is nothing like it. He was happy because I believed in him. And he has brought something back to me that I thought I had lost... my laughter." >>
