In this song, Dido sings of "gently drifting" while her contemporaries move on with their lives. However the single singer-songwriter insisted to the Daily Mail November 21, 2008 that this tune is not autobiographical. She said: "I'm not putting my life down in a diary." Dido added that if you try to analyze her by listening to Safe Trip Home, "you'll get in a right old mess. My songs don't work like that."
