    General CommentIt feels like a song that you'd listen to when nothing is really going right. You're lonely and sad, and everything you try to do to make yourself feel better doesn't help at all.

    At around 1:30 in the song a ray of hope enters, and you think that things might finally be getting better, but this feeling ends around 2:15 and the sad mood returns. The mood is heightened by the violin playing at around 2:50. While I think this song is sad, it does end with the "happy" section of the song, which makes me view this as an uplifting song.

    General CommentTo me this is one of the only songs of that kind of trip-hop/dancey genre that doesn't make me want to cry! Which is great. I love the bit with the saxophone that it builds up to :D

    General CommentThe best parts of the song is when the brass horns come in. You cant help but start to move to the rythym. If I owned a cool lounge, this song would play over and over in it.

    General CommentHaha a girl told me this song described her life perfectly so I got it expecting this lyrically dense sort of travelling story. I listened to it a few times trying to find the words, then I got it, I like this song a lot
