This song is a short, soft ballad that is quite subtle compared to the rest of the album. Clocking in at just over 2 minutes, the focus is largely on Halstead's solo voice, accompanied by layers of mostly-clean guitars that you might not even realize are layered until you dig further into the mix, as well as sparse percussion including shakers and hand drums. This is the other Eno-produced song on the record, with his less-is-more touch having a noticeable impact on this piece.
Guitar on this song plays a fairly sparse lead melody, that's mostly single notes with occasional chords. The bass is mostly long sustains, with 8th notes every once in a while, and the drums mostly stick to the hand drum part, with 16th notes on the yellow and blue toms. The vocals are low and simple, but nice and pleasant to sing.
