In a recent interview with Incubus, Brandon Boyd expressed his thoughts on the song:
|“||It's almost a little bit of a cliché. It is talking about the idea of love and finding love and having it be pure and not tainted by our misperceptions, misconceptions, expectations and transcending the sort of more worldly aspects of the love experience.||”|
An unofficial video from a live concert (with audio of the studio track dubbed over the live performance) was released for the song on March 23, 2007. No official video was made for this song.
