John Wetton was the lead vocalist for King Crimson. Geoff Downes was in a band called the Buggles. They both wrote this song - John Wetton as a lyrical apology to a woman he had wronged. Together with members of Yes and ELP, they made up Asia, a prog rock supergroup.
This was their biggest and only major hit - but it was a really big hit, making the top 5 in the US and charts around the world. I mentioned the lyrics earlier - it was a lyrical apology - but you might notice that it has a very country feel. That's because it was originally written as a country song.
