The song is about coming home for the first time without a partner being there after a break up. The video clip is also about this, with Lauper coming home after a long day at work to an empty room after a separation. The song was written by Lauper, Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg. The latter two also wrote True Colors and I Drove All Night.
The single was considered a failure in most of the world because it failed to make a big impact on most charts. It did do moderately well in Chile. In the Radio Cidade from São Paulo, Brazil, this song was #1. In Colombia, the single was #1 for 10 weeks. Since the track didn't do too well on U.S. radio, most fans think more radio-friendly songs from the album, like Unconditional Love, would have done better as the commercially released second single.
