Songfacts®:

  • Wilson Phillips released yet another love song, in this case telling a would-be secret admirer that she's on to him and that the interest is mutual, so he should "give it up" and be honest with her about her interest.
  • This was Wilson Phillips' last song to reach the charts. The following year, the group itself decided to give it up and went their separate ways. The split was amicable and they remained friends, they reunited in 2004 and have recorded and performed from time to time since. >>
