I had never really known you
but I realized that the one you were before,
had changed into somebody for whom
I wouldn’t mind to put the kettle on.

A wonderful ballad which didn’t make it before as the contenders were too strong. This is by far not my fave version – that would be the acoustic album recording – but it gives a new perspective on the song. I may be wrong but to me the electronic treatment makes the song sound lighter, the material resonation of the guitar strings is resolved into a floating movement of synthesized sounds. Does that make any sense?
