And I would not waste my time dreaming you were mine." Fossee's vocals have a pure, warm, and inviting tone. Taking the second verse, Anana Kaye sings, "If it were any other day, I'd know exactly what to say. I'd tell you I don't want you anymore. And I'd say it loud and clear. And make it sound sincere." Kaye's vocals provide the perfect contrast with a sulty tone that is purely captivating.
As the charming song moves forward small piano motifs played by Anana Kaye glisten over the track. Background vocal harmonies add pure nostalgia from the 1950's. The outstanding chorus, sung by both artists, sounds like something you would hear in a hit musical:
"But any fool can see, that you and I were meant to be. Through all the agony you put me through. But I cannot pretend this love would ever end. And I could be with anyone but you."
After the chorus, a smooth trombone solo slides in blending seamlessly with the track. The solo, played by Roy Agee, is briliantly tasteful. A guitar solo ends the song with melodic wistfulness.
