Song History[edit]

CC originally brought the song to Poison, where Rikki and Bobby added their magic to it. The lyrics were written after a girlfriend of CC's was shot and killed in a bar fight in Palm Springs. This is possibly why the solo is so immaculate and emotional. This song is considered a fan favorite due to C.C.'s guitar solo and is about trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel.
