    Song MeaningIt is about a man that took his woman for granted and too late to reconcile his grave mistakes. I think the line...THERES NOT ENOUGH TIME HES A WORKING MAN... is very clever. Journey stresses that this is about a typical tough blue collar working class guy, that feels he is doing right for his woman by just providing. This is sung by proxy by Steve Perry as opposed to Faithfully, sung about Mr. Perry.

    General CommentAlways liked this song, has a lot of the Steve Perry R&B style. This song has Randy Jackson of American Idol on bass.

    General CommentThe song is a simple but eloquent expression of the sense of confusion and loss after a break-up. I don't think Randy Jackson was on this track. This song is on Frontiers and Jackson played on the Raised on Radio LP. Bass would have been played by Ross Valory.

    General CommentLike others have said this is about a break-up. I'm quite surprised this doesn't have more comments because in my opinion this is one of their best songs. This and Separate Ways are so amazing!

    MemoryThe solo/riff at the end of the song always rips into my heart. So much emotion....Brings back memories of many, many years ago
