  • This is one of the few Yes songs that no members from the band's '70s lineups had a part in writing. It was solely composed by Trevor Rabin, a guitarist/producer who joined the band in 1982. Stevie Nicks was slated to record the song, and she even changed some of the lyrics before Yes drummer Alan White heard the song and implored Rabin to keep it for Yes. He did, and it gave the band one of their last hits - their next single "Rhythm Of Love" was their last to crack the Top 40.
  • Trevor Rabin explained in the book Yesstories: "I really enjoyed that song, because the lyric, 'Love will find a way' I thought was a great lyric. I just kept singing it over and over to myself and I was very happy with that song. It's a feel-good song. I put the orchestral piece in the beginning and it was great getting into the studio with the old baton. I felt the song turned out very well; unfortunately, I think a lot of Yes fans listened to it and said, 'You're moving too far away from what Yes stands for.'"

  • Aj from Orange County, CaWhile Trevor Rabin may be justified in thinking "Love will find a way" was "a great lyric", this song also includes quite possibly one of the clumsiest, silliest most pretentious yet dumbest lyric in any Top 40 song, at least in the humble opinion of this Songfacts participant: "I eat at Chez Nous." It translates literally to "the house of we" or "our house" or "where we live." There was a "Chez Nous" restaurant in LA's Toluca Lake area, and Rabin reportedly ate there. Nevertheless, the inclusion of the lyric is like an embarrassing third appendage, like an arm growing out of your back or a leg coming out of your chest. It doesn't belong, and it is puzzling why it was allowed to remain when the song was recorded.
