In a Sun TV interview, KT Tunstall explained that this is a special song to her, and she's always loved the phrase "Hopeless Romantic." She says that this song is about "people around you saying 'tsk tsk tsk what are you doing? Get a job you're wasting your time.'" She also says that there is something honorable about being hopeless if it's done for a good reason.
