    This track sounds like some guy who's trying to get in my pants. But the last minute is pure gold!

    The lyrics hit me so hard emotionally. "God, can you whisper in her ear? / I wasn't sure if we could be friends." Beautiful.

    I always hear "milk" at the beginning.

    "Waiting patiently for the 3 and half minutes of beauty to unfold into one of the most wonderful samples I've ever heard is one of the most geniune moments of Burial's discography. He put it right at the end knowing that this sample is SO beautiful that you must not abuse of it. Well played, sir." My thoughts exactly.
