... because it's a BALLAD!!!
Carl said one day, hey why don't we try writing a pop ballad, since neither of us have done that and it would stretch us!
How right he was! I used to generally skip the "token ballad" on my 80's and 90's LPs, so I didn't have too many clues where to start! We both found it very difficult but we think we got there in the end - but up to you folks to be the judge of that!!
So, cuddle up to your significant other, and crank this up on the stereo - hope it works for you
