Roy on Liv: "Liv in many ways has been my inspiration and muse for this record and beside her I am a stronger man. So for all those of you who'd rather I were single, sorry but there might not have been a record without her."

Liv on Roy: "I'm madly in love, it's amazing to be able to feel, three years later, more in love than I did even when we first met. When I see him, I blush. Constantly."
