The song came about when Culture Club Guitarist Roy Hay and Mike Craig puting some music together, and Boy George getting excited and putting lyrics to it.
According to George his song provides a the answer to the proposition, “just give it time.”
In the song it’s illustrated that time doesn’t always make a relationship work. Staying together might make you feel like you have a real love, when really all you’ve done is log some hours as a couple. Time is precious, and it’s too valuable to waste on something that isn’t working.
