    There’s also an interview from Dido where she states it’s all about the pregnancy while expecting her son. Can’t recall which interview it was during promotion of the record. She says something as like when she played this song to her friends and so on insantly everyone who’s got children got emotional.

    “i wanna wake up with your weight by my side” therefore imply Dido waking up while pregnant.

      DIDO: Yeah. You know what that song is to me? It really is just about that strength of long-term love, and it’s about when you really are made stronger by being with someone, and you can really look someone in the eye, and go through those trickier moments. A hurricane is sort of a metaphor for the chaos of everything. Actually, when the world is a bit chaotic, and uncontrollable, that you have this real strength between you.

      Marriage is huge. I think marriage is just a very romantic thing to do in a way. Some people see it the other way, and I don’t see it that way. I think there is a difference. You feel a difference when you get married, and that’s what that song is about, I think.
