Diamond told the Sun newspaper May 16, 2008 about this track: "I stand back and look at Pretty Amazing Grace and to me it's a song about the perfection of love. To somebody else, it's gonna mean something else. There was no premeditated idea. What does it all mean? I don't know and I don't care. It's gonna be what it is.
