    Does anyone know what the female vocal sample at the beginning after the child's voice is from? "What have you done tooooo my heart."

    I've had several shit times in my life. I love this man. He creates the most honest lyrics with the most beautifully composed music I've ever heard. He sounds like an angel out of another world and time. He makes me laugh, giggle, sigh, tear, long, wonder, hope, remember, forget, dance, stop and take notice, and want more. I heart Jens.

    People seem to think a shy personality equals gifted But if they would get to know one I'm sure that idea would have shifted Most shy people I know are extremely boring Either that or they are miserable from all the shit they've been storing Thats basically the story of my life right there.

    I read in an interview with Jens (I think it might have been in pitchfork) that the little kid in the song is a clip of Jens as a child. That just makes the song all the better.

    LOVE this song. The little kid doo, doo, doo-doo-doo-ing along to the song was obnoxious at first, but I love these lyrics and this music. Maybe my favorite on the album.
