The song was written by Joel Webster and Lim Taylor.

* This number suggests it was the first thing issued on Crossover Records. #9003 is Billy Brooks’ Windows Of The Mind, but #9002 stayed empty (maybe this number was set aside for the album that Ray and Billy Preston once planned to record (this – highly plausible – speculation was put forward by Joël Dufour).
