Dido told the Los Angeles Times November 18, 2008 about this poetic love song with the subject matter of settling down into a relationship. She explained that this tune, "is a prime example of something where I want to express something really simple and pure and beautiful, but I also can't help myself having a little bit of doubt. And a song about something absolutely devastating can be uplifting and hopeful as well."
Dido commented to the Daily Mail November 21, 2008 on this song: "It's my attempt at a romantic number." She added: "I've never been cynical about relationships. I'm the eternal optimist."
