From the album " CRY WITH A SMILE"
This song, laid over a simple acoustic guitar melody and frontline rim shot, is a "get somebody's body close to your body", ole skool slow drag kinda R&B ballad. The song tells the story of a battle fatigued "soldier of love" (thanx Sade) who had shut down, and explains right away, "I wasn't lookin' for more than a good time, because my heart was in recovery from, all the fallin' I had done, and up until then, love had not been kind". Then she meets someone who cracks that defense wall she'd built up. By the end of the song it’s almost like a testimonial about what we all learned about what love can do…even to a “self-exiled from love heart” like hers (OK MINE :>) had been.
