This was written by Dennis Lambert and Brian Potter, who were producers at the ABC-Dunhill label where The Four Tops recorded from 1973-1978 after leaving Motown Records. Lambert and Potter were responsible for many of the label's hits, including Coven's "One Tin Soldier (The Legend of Billy Jack)
" and Don't Pull Your Love (Out)
by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds. This song is similar to many Motown hits in that it's a well-crafted and soulful song about strong affection.
