After recording the successful dance single, the group returned to their more comfortable standard of ballads. Relying on an outside producer, outside songwriters, and background vocalists, Richard Page and Steve George, this song was recorded and released as the second single from their fourth album, Rhythm of the Night.
The song reached number six on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, spent four weeks at number two on the R&B chart, and became their third song to top the U.S. adult contemporary chart.
The song appeared in a late 1985 episode of the daytime soap opera All My Children.
