Album: What We Saw From The Cheap Seats (2012)
  • This sparse piano ballad is a straightforward breakup song, a rarity for Spektor, who is better known for her stream of conscious lyrical content. Speaking with American Songwriter magazine, producer Mike Elizondo, called it, "one of the most beautiful vocals I've ever been a part of capturing. It really felt like she was laying her heart out there. She was coming clean with how she's feeling in that particular moment. It's pretty special when you can get a performer like her to pull that off."
  • The intimate video was directed by Margo Weathers, and is a combination of animation and live action. It uses handmade paper collages designed by Bic Owen, which adorn Spektors' costumes as she sings to camera. They were animated in stop motion by The Academy in Seattle.
