Jon Bon Jovi wrote this for Nicks and sang it with her. In the liner notes to her TimeSpace
album, Nicks said: "When I first heard this song, I really did not quite understand what Jon was trying to say, but over the 2 weeks that we sang it together (at my mike), I started to realize that Jon, without knowing it, had sort of taken a time machine back 18 years and watched my life, the good parts and the bad. It was not a love song, which of course, I had expected it to be; it was much more than that to me. Bon Jovi had picked up on the fact, before meeting me, that there was no way he could know what I had lived through without having lived through it with me, so he dreamed. He dreamed about what the notorious Stevie Nicks had been like and what it had all done to her... the indulgences, the lifestyle. I felt that if he knew nothing else about me, he knew I had a strong instinct to survive. Someday, maybe all the people who did not go through this with us will understand; that considering the generation we come from, we are very lucky to be alive."
