This song was written by the same guy who wrote all of Meat Loaf's fact, this song was first offered to Meat Loaf along with "Making Love Out of Nothing at All" for his 1983 album "Midnight at the Lost and Found" but for financial reasons, Meat Loaf's record company wanted him to write his own material for the album.  His loss I'd say since Bonnie Tyler made history with this tune and Air Supply did pretty well with "Making Love Out of Nothing at All"!
