    British people need to listen to more british music we 've spent our whole lives followingg what America has been doing when the real talent is at home and fading away from our eyes. We need to support our countries music

    "She brings her hands up towards where my hand's rested/ she wraps her fingers 'round mine with the softness she's blessed with/ she peels away my fingers, looks at me and then gestures/ by pushing my hand away to my chest, from hers"

    @StephanePG I didn't mean anything by it, it just was an observation. Like I said earlier, good song. Sample or not, fair play!

    @pkymen: The opening is so alike something, but what? Can't remember from where it come from, but I'm sure it's a sample. Hoping someone will point it out which one in the wiki. :)
