Sarah Close’s vocals add a sweet element to the mix; she sings confidently with an airy lightness that creates the perfect vessel for the honest lyrics. The bridge, with a poetically spoken delivery, is like hearing an excerpt from a diary. This artistic choice adds a very human element that brings you back down to earth and makes the celestial feeling of the track that much more magical.
