According to McLachlan this song describes the obsessive love of a stalker for his victim. She credits the inspiration as her own personal stalker who sent her hundreds of letters - and then he sued her for a cut of the songs earnings, but before the case could go to trial he had committed suicide. Pretty dark stuff!

The words to this song, to me, are ones regarding a bit of a one-sided relationship, where one loves the other so much to endure no matter what; but, the other person in relationship isn't fully truthful. And noncommital in what they say or do (even betrayal). Yet, it is one of passion and memories, between the two, that are too strong for to throw away. She will continue to "... Follow without pride... And won't be denied. " rather sad.
