  • Lyrics
  • Blunt told The Metro that this song is about the English supermodel Kate Moss. "Yes, she is a dangerous woman," he said. Failing to elaborate the singer cryptically teased; "It's one of those naïve songs full of that teenage energy. That excitement of having someone, that fear and the excitement of the unknown."
  • This was the first song that Blunt wrote with Some Kind of Trouble producer Steve Robson. During a conversation with Mike Ragnoga of Solar Powered KRUU-FM, Blunt explained how an initial get together led to the writing of an album. "That was the first song I wrote for this album. I walked into this guy's studio - Steve Robson. I was supposed to just meet him for a beer, and I wasn't quite sure at the time what I was doing musically. I was just sort of hanging out with my friends and stepping out of the music scene. Then, I walked in and picked up an electric guitar - which I hadn't properly played in a long time - and we wrote this song together. I asked after if I could come in tomorrow and record this and we did and it sounded great. So, I came in the next day and wrote another. The days turned into weeks which turned into months. It turned into a year in the studio together. I'm sure his wife was extremely jealous from the amount of time we spent together, but the results came spontaneously."
  • The phrase "I'll be wrapped around your finger" is also used as the title of a Police song. Blunt told Mike Ragnoga: "It wasn't supposed be a reference to that, but I guess that's how music permeates through your mind. On the song 'Dangerous,' it feels like a teenager picking up a new instrument and writing something with all of that naive excitement."
