A common interpretation of this song is that it's told from the point of view of the wife's new boyfriend on a rainy day out, after a divorce, with "your wife" being used ironically toward the ex-husband. This interpretation seems likely, as Artificial Heart features recurring themes of abandonment, breakups, and marriage. It may also be about a brother or similar figure meeting up with the wife character, a widow, and talking about her late husband.
