|Marvin Gaye singles chronology|
Co-written by Gaye, Clarence Paul and David Hamilton and produced by Paul, the song described the narrator's longing and pleading to his woman to not leave his side after the two had an argument.
The song was originally written and recorded as a psychedelic holiday song called Purple Snowflakes. This version was eventually shelved and wouldn't be released until 1992, when it was released on the Motown Christmas compilation Christmas In the City.
A non-album track until the release of his Anthology album nearly ten years later, this song was a top forty success for Gaye peaking at number sixteen on the R&B chart and number twenty-five pop.
