Billy Sherrill and Glenn Sutton wrote the song for Tammy and David’s album. The song is a story of two people who have ended their relationship together. However, despite that they are not together anymore, they still love each other. The man keeps thinking about the woman he loves and wants to hold her in his arms again. But, he knows that thinking of her constantly and wanting to be with her will never happen because their relationship is over.

They both knew that it’s over and they feel lonely because of it.
