Was Robbie Dupree a part of this group? I always thought the keyboard part of his hit Steal Away sounded a lot like this song.

Never really was
Right now I can't enjoy this song, but I like it , but at thesometime my wife is getting on my nerves!
My daughter got her name from this song, it was playing on the radio when her dad went out to smoke after she was born with tears in his eyes he asked if we could name her Sara
I believe she's never far away

Been loving this song my whole life. Abd really just read the lyrics. So good. So real. So deep. Wow. It is amazing. Mcdonald was and still is a bad man on the mic and piano. What a fool believes. That is priceless.
Blue eyed soul brothers amazing!
Baby come back!!!! I just can't live without you
Love is blind, deaf and dumb. No wise man has the power to reason away.
♥ the lyrics..the meaning.the beat!!
Now that I read the lyrics 40+ years later this is deeper than when I had a few of the words wrong, eg "NO wise man has the power to reason away"...had thought line was "the wise man..." which would be only cliche advice...but there IS some hope here for da poor guy, not just useless rock pathos...he' s hoping against hope, and God can use that...
So true. So sad. So unavoidable.
Wow, this is #Classical RnB. Love this song. Follow me on Twitter: @Courage2Bel i e v e or Like me on Facebook: http://www.f a c e b o o k . c o m / T h e C o u r a g e T o B e l i e v e
