Fuqua and Bristol handled the recording's production. Ruffin had been dismissed from the Temptations in June for what has been repeatedly deemed increasingly unprofessional behavior. The song was originally intended to be sung by the Temptations when Ruffin was still the group's front man, but when he finally agreed to a solo contract with Motown, the song was given to him.
All throughout the song, Ruffin asks his lover why she left him, what he did wrong that drove her away, and professes to her that without her, his life is Eyes - North Mississippi Allstars - Polaris. Singing backup for Ruffin on the recording are The Originalswho the same year would score a hit of their own with " Baby I'm For Real ".
Only one more of Ruffin's solo singles, 's Walk Away from Lovewould match its success. Kiki Dee also recorded the track for her Motown album Great Expectations. From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
