This song has a very sad background: A close friend of the Pet Shop Boys lost his lover who committed suicide. The man found it very difficult to forget his lover and the good times they both had together. He told the group that he keeps thinking and dreaming of his dead friend and suddenly he feels that miraculous things happen in his mind because of the presence of the dead friend. That inspired Neil Tennant to write lyrics like "You always bring a bluer sky, a brighter day" and "Miracles happen when you're around."
