    I love this song, the meaning is pretty self explanatory - what if he'd never gone on this blind date and stood her up?

    And on roger wilco's comment about the first line being contradictory, I thought about it, and I think that he's singing about another song that he wrote and he's showing the woman the song he wrote. That's just my thought though

    this choon contradicts itself in the first line. how could he have written a song about a person or situation he had yet to encounter? plus it is all written in past tense!

    a beautiful song, tho. a true gem.

    A truly beautiful song, and a cute commentary on what could have been.

    I love the first line of this song. It's pretty self-explanatory, and unlike a lot of Pulp songs, it's a straight up-and-down ode to love, which is either disappointing next to the rest of the band's work, or a refreshing change, depending on your mood.

    I always thought it was "I wrote this song to us before we met" not two hours

    Yeah, this song is saying 'What if we'd never met on that day, would we have met another time or not?' and how things would never be the way they are now. Really sweet song, which is a bit different for Pulp!

    I take the "I wrote this song two hours before we met..." literally. The song isn't so much about wondering what would've happened if you never met someone but wanting to meet someone when you don't have anyone. The narrator is predicting that in two hours he will meet this wonderful person and it will change his life. It's incredibly optimistic as well as bittersweet. What happens in two hours if there isn't anyone special? I find this song very sweet and heartbreaking at the same time.

    It could be he wrote the music two hours before he met her but added the word later. At least thats how ive always looked at it
