Hansard once said in an interview that he and Irglova, after their romance ended, sat down together and said "Do we want to continue with this? Do we want to remain in a band together?" And decided: (direct quote) “Fuck it, we’ve known each other a long time, and we’re great mates, and we do enjoy it, so let’s do it.” The song sort of presents the way it was after they broke up but before they really sorted things out between them. .
