Taylor Dayne - Greatest Hits
"Love Will Lead You Back" is a song by an American singer Taylor Dayne. It was released as the second single from her second album “Can’t Fight Fate”.
The song written by Diane Warren is about a woman who is feeling confident enough that one day his love for her will lead him back and so she is very willing to set her love free.
She says in the song that it takes some time out on your own to find your way back home.
Many people relate to this song as it is about things that happen to people in their life and we often find ourselves in a stalemate and in a place where we have to make the same decision like she is describing in the song.
Warren says she started writing the song when she was in a hotel in Russia and all the time when she was writing, she had Whitney Houston in her mind but Clive Davis Arista Records president wanted to let her record the song. After recording and releasing the song, it became Dayne’s first number one single.
The music video is simple and features Warren and her band in studio performing the song and it was released in both black and white and some sepia tones.
The song was released on 27 January 1990 and it reached number one on the Billboard Hot 100 on April 7 the same year and it spent 15 weeks in the top 40 which made the song Dayne’s sole chart-topping hit.
The song was certified Gold in the USA by the RIAA and it also reached number one on the Billboard Audit Contemporary chart. The video has more than 17 million views currently on YouTube.
Taylor Dayne - Love Will Lead You Back - Lyrics
Release Date - January 20, 1990
Album - Can't Fight Fate
Is never an easy thing
But you never said
That you'd stay forever
So if you must go
Oh, darling I set you free
But I know in time
That we'll be together
I won't try
To stop you now from leaving
'Cause in my heart I know
Love will lead you back
Someday I just know that
Love will lead you back to my arms
Where you belong
I'm sure, sure as stars are shining
One day you will find me again, it won't be long
One of these days our love will lead you back
One of these nights
Ooh, I'll hear your voice again
You're gonna say
Ooh, how much you missed me
You'll walk out this door
But someday you'll walk back in
And darling I know, ooh
I know this will be
Sometimes it takes
Sometime you on your own now
To find your way back home
