  • Patrick Wolf is bisexual, and on December 31, 2010, he announced via Twitter that he was set to enter a civil partnership with his boyfriend William Charles Pollock. The singer told Digital Spy that he wrote this as a love song for both a straight couple and a gay couple. He explained: "It's for the straight couple to realize that the gay couple are experiencing the same emotion of love, but that it just happens to be between the same sex. I wanted to try and eradicate the prejudices that come with gay love."
