Interview on this site:

"(ANDREW): I love that song. That's a really great song….one of the best on the album.
(PETERIK): Thank you. I totally love that song and the story behind that song. With the exception of that song, all these songs were written for Roaring of Dreams in a period of about 3 months, or 4 months, whatever. But that song goes all the way back to 1984.
Whenever the hell we were recording When Seconds Count, anyway '85-'86, and I played that song for [producer] Ron Nevison. It wasn't finished. He flipped. He loved it and we cut a demo of it with Jamison singing. I wish I had it and I can't find it.
But it was not as good as it is now. I wasn't finished. The words were weaker, the bridge was terrible, but I never forgot that song.
Anyway, it never made the record. But it's almost better because in the passage of time I was able to finish the song to my satisfaction and of course Toby did an amazing job on it. "


Publishing info says that songs with the titles "Bittersweet", "Faithful Heart", and "That's Why I Sing" were all copyrighted in 1988 (although they could have been written earlier and could be different songs).

I love finding out this stuff! Makes me imagine what albums like Caught in the Game would sound like with "Man Behind the Mask", Vital Signs with "It's Criminal" and "Vital Signs", When Seconds Count with "Faithful Heart" and Too Hot to Sleep with "Interrupted Melody" or one of the other songs written around that time.
