About trying to work through a failing relationship by making love.

This one is so beautiful and it's interesting... there's no controversy on this one, just "Sledgehammer" and "Kiss That Frog"... lol

The song appears in Wim Wender's 1991 film, "Until the End of the World." I'm not sure if Peter Gabriel wrote the song specifically for the movie; but other artists including U2, REM, and The Talking Heads did compose original scores for inclusion in the film, so it's very possible.
