Written by Seal and Henry Olusegun Adeola Samuel, it was an international hit and became Seal's signature song. The song is set in the key of C major and A minor and consists of 73 measures. It features Seal's soulful crooning over an R&B-infused beat, accompanied by a muted string section and a booming bass. Its lyrics detail a voyage of self-acceptance and the joys and pains of true love. The song ends with a soaring guitar solo, and Seal's powerful, emotive delivery of the chorus.
