This was written by the songwriting team of Mike Chapman and Holly Knight, whose credits include "The Best
" for Tina Turner and "Love Is A Battlefield
" for Pat Benatar. Knight told Songfacts
: "It's a great song, I'm a big fan of the Divinyls. I just like the lyrics. I like that it's a little bit darker and still very sort of poppy. And I was a huge fan of Christina Amphlett from the Divinyls. And I just liked the tune. It's sort of more in the line of "Invincible
," but a little bit darker."
Regarding the song's meaning, she said: "It can be so good and it can be so bad at the same time. If you're going to go for the good then you better expect that the bad is going to be just as strong if it happens. That's something I use a lot in my songs, that dichotomy."
