Songfacts®:

  • James Blake sings here of a girl who floats in and out of his life. Kanye West was supposed to rap on the track until he bailed out. Blake told Pitchfork: "I think a huge swath of things happened in his life, and I just stayed out of it. Eventually, the mood of the album changed, and in the end I don't think it would have fit."
