Unsurprisingly, some people play this song at their weddings without knowing or caring what it's really about. In a 2022 Songfacts interview with Matt Nathanson
, he talked about how he feels about this. "I think it's great that anybody likes anything that I made," he said. "I used to think you can't interpret this as a love song, it's about divorce, near-divorce. But what I've realized is human beings see things only the way they want to see things. If the past five years have taught me anything, it's that people can take factual information, if it's very clear-cut, and make it about anything they want. I'm just psyched that the music moved them enough for them to interpret it any way they want to interpret it. I used to think, I'm not doing my job right
. But no, people misinterpret the Constitution, people misinterpret the Bible. I'm psyched just to be thought of in any way."
