Eddie Money
This was the first single for Eddie Money, who was a New York City cop before pursuing his music career. Money (real name: Edward Mahoney) wrote the song with his guitarist Jimmy Lyon. It's simply about a couple struggling to hold on to their love during difficult times. Trivia:

Rock impresario Bill Graham said of Money, "Eddie Money has it all.... Not only can he sing, write, and play, but he is a natural performer."
