Songfacts®:

  • Suzi Quatro married her first husband, guitarist Len Tuckey, in 1978; they divorced in 1992. This song is a plea for him to "let her go." Although their union lasted 16 years, for the last six they were married in name only.
  • As might be expected, this is a slow number, and was written by Quatro alone; the saxophone solo is by Ray Beavis. The song runs to 4 minutes 56 seconds. >>
