There’s a magnificence to this song, a grandiosity that comes across through its simplicity. It’s a deeply elegant tapestry of sensation – a mix of an easy beat with lyrics that haunt so agonisingly because of their bull’s-eye poignancy.
To listen to this song is to be transported to one of the most monumental moments of your life, in a way that’s shockingly acute, empathetic, and painful.
It’s impossible to listen to, and impossible to stop listening to.
There’s a love between us still
but something’s changed and I don’t know why
and all I wanna do is go home with you
but I know I’m out of my mind
You wanna touch me but you’re too late
you wanna touch me but there’s too much history
starting to live the lies we tell ourselves
I only need you to be friends with me
