'Cause at once upon a time, it was you I adored.
I could smile...
'Cause at once upon a time, it was you I adored.

You look different.

    General CommentI remember reading an interview with Burial where he mentions he spends many of his nights/early mornings sitting in a 24 hour McDonalds by himself, not answering his cellphone...

    General CommentI agree with TimothyReal and just for clarification, the woman in this song is Aaliyah. The line is sampled from her song "I Refuse." Got goosebumps when I heard her voice out of nowhere.

    General CommentBeautiful song. That's basically all I ever say on this website, haha. But I guess that's most of what I appreciate in music: Beauty. It's soooo present on this album.

    General Commentany additional lyrics would be great, but you gotta have some kind of super hearing to make them out.

    General CommentOh, please. Who y'all bullshitting. It's an insulting song. They are both sitting in a Mickey D's after not having seen each other for a very long time. The years have passed (perhaps) and they've grown older, larger, etc. She, like a typical woman, still sees his beauty (his insides) while he, like a typical man (yes, it's a stereotype, but a darn good one as stereotypes go) only notices that she's gotten larger and older. This is NOT a happy song about reminicising about the past, etc. Y'all need to give it a rest, please.
