My favorite on the record behind Daydreaming...Beautiful bossanova-inspired guitar melody combined with that heartbreaking lyrical imagery. Then the choir hits (as it does in several other tracks on this album) and I'm completely floored.

Oh. My. Gosh. a bittersweet love/breakup song from Thom that is even more heavy when you consider he divorced from his wife who died of cancer a year later. It's a beautiful song and ugh, I don't even want to think of what goes through Thom's head when he revisits this.

The light airy bridge on this track challenges the one on Muse's "Citizen Erased" for the most spectacular I've ever heard. It completely takes me away and makes me feel weightless (and I'm a big guy!).

Love the warm guitar work, rich bossanova vibes and romantic lyrics. This would easily fit on 'In Rainbows.'
