Annie Lennox explained this song in a blog promoting her 2009 greatest hits album: "It is a very personal, sweet song. I lost my first baby, and when you lose a child you have to carry on in life without them being a continuing part of it. It changes the entire way you see everything. Further on down the line, my daughter was safely brought into the world, and I wrote this song for her, because I was just so profoundly grateful for her existence. Now I have two daughters, and the dedication extends to both my girls, so now the title is plural because I love them both equally with the passion of a mother."
The music video, shot partly in black and white, features Lennox as an angel. The clip was directed by her frequent collaborator Sophie Muller, who also directed videos for Diva
