The song was written by Lou Gramm and Mick Jones, and the b-side, "Growing Up the Hard Way", was itself released as an A-side single in Europe. This song reached number 54 in the U.S. charts.

Allmusic critic Bret Adams praised the song's "pleasant chorus" and "warm keyboard melody."[1] It reached #54 on the Billboard Hot 100.[2]
