Dave Gahan said in the Electronic Press Kit for 'Paper Monsters':

"[T]hat is a song about being in love and really realising that I was feeling love again. It doesn't have to be about being in love with another person but just feeling the love and the beauty of everything again. I also wanted it to have a feel about it that was sitting on some little barstool in some little dirty Paris smoke-filled café and that real sort of feel about it, somehow. Now that song is like, to me, it's really innocent and honest I didn't want to think too much about making words and things sound good – I just wanted it to sound exactly how I felt."
