  • This was written and originally recorded by The Bee Gees, who included it on their 1976 album Children of the World. A plea to one's lover to give their love another try, it was Elliman's second-biggest hit in the US. Her only more popular song was "If I Can't Have You," which she recorded the next year, and was also written by The Bee Gees. >>
