The song is dedicated to Yaguine Koita and Fode Tounkara, young stowaways who died flying from Guinea to Belgium in July, 1999; as well as the millions who live in poverty and the video was shot in Zanzibar and Tanzania in October, 2007.
Despite it's sincere subject matter, when I listen to it, I always think of my wife and in particular one interesting evening we had. It was our first Valentine's and I wanted to make a great impression. Although, I I'd only had moved down to West Wales a few months earlier, I thought it would be best to check with my sister (who was living done there at the time) for her recommendations of a nice restaurant in the area. Unfortunately, she couldn't remember the name but said it started with a 'B' and was near a particular round-about, so when I came across the 'Bush Inn', near the said roundabout I quickly called them up to book a table. I was greatly relieved that they had some availability and I thought I'd cracked it.

On the night, I slapped on the Old Spice, had a 'Valentines Playlist' CD prepared, put it on the car stereo and we headed out. She had asked, "where were we headed" and I said that "it was a surprise" and we continued the drive, both looking forward to a romantic evening. As we got nearer to the roundabout, I got a little nervous as we passed a little pub and noticed how my girlfriend seemed to smile on the approach, but then looked a little confused as we drove past the car park.
We continued on and quickly arrived at the roundabout and we had arrived at the place I had booked. As I pulled into the car park I noticed that my girlfriend had a little grin, I was certain it was in anticipation of a night of guaranteed loving. However, when we walked into the bar, my face dropped, I was gutted, it was full of pensioners, paper table cloths, a cheap fake rose on the table and I quickly realised I had made a big mistake. It was a dive, the sort of pub that looks up to a Weatherspoons. I had a face on as I realised I had got it completely wrong. We quickly ate our meal and drove back home, as we passed the other pub I noticed the name, it was called "the Bridge". It was a surprise, just not the one I was hoping for!!!
