Charted: 123

Songfacts®:

  • In this reflective song, lead singer Ed Roland takes on an air of humility. He drops some heavy lines like, "Lead me to my urgency," but then lightens the mood with a dance groove as he completes the chorus with "So let's shake it like this."
  • The drum loop in the background is not a drum at all - it's a glass falling and breaking looped over and over. In this era, the band did plenty of in-studio experimentation. >>
