"It's not the song that people think it is. It's about this guy who's high as a kite stalking someone else's girlfriend - and should be locked up and put in prison. But people think, 'Ah, he's a sweet romantic.' If you think that's what romance is, then I think you're pretty weird." - James Blunt
"The girl in question is my ex-girlfriend and she's with her new man. I've always said that I haven't seen her since and then the press tried to find her. I'm not bothered enough to start acknowledging or denying whether they found her." - James Blunt
''Do I still like the song? Absolutely. It's a really personal song about a moment which meant a great deal to me. And I'm sure plenty of guys have seen their ex-girlfriend with a new man at some stage. It bites into you and I captured that in a really honest song. I love that song for capturing that moment. I'm saddened by what it reminds me of, and I appreciate what it did which is advertise an album I'd made." - James Blunt
