The sharp piano introduction is simple but catchy and well composed. The depth of meaning of the lyrics used has significance to those in love, to lovers, and to those who have fallen in love. The vocalist is not the most talent person on the planet, and has a slight nasal voice whilst expressing some of the lines. There is an eighties feel to the entire ensemble of this piece.

The repetitive backing vocals can be interpreted as unnecessary but give a super star element to the song. The line 'Brake my bones but you won't see me fall' is done exceptionally well. The obvious use of technology in the composition of the music makes it a contemporary eighties style song. Trumpets don't make themselves appear obvious until the last verse.

The vocalist sounds quite a bit younger than their actual age, and her vocal changes are amateurish and not very well practiced. Sharp endings to lines give it a sharp tone. The drums and piano are great in the chorus. And there is an unidentified mystery instrument in the third verse. The ongoing piano tunes keep it upbeat.


The piano intensifies in the pre chorus and is quite repetitious throughout the song, alternating between three to four main holding patterns or repeated compositions. The symbols of the drum are over used, loud enough to turn you off the whole song. Well unless you like a loud symbol. There are elements of electronica meets traditional dance.

There are a limited number of of chords used throughout this simplistic song and each verse is almost identical musically, but varies vocally and lyrically. The chorus is quite loaded with instrumental components, which I suspect to be almost 100% electronically generated for reducing costs of production.
