The xx take a 1996 R&B jam, remove the beats, add a lot of cross-faded atmosphere and their dueted voices to give us a sweet and sexy track about holding off a bit before having sex with someone. I’d argue the cut does a great job of musically capturing the feeling one builds up in this scenario.
Oh it’s gonna be, hot like fire Take you higher You can’t resist Kiss, kiss, and kiss and kiss and kiss and…
It certainly sounds like the wait will be worth it to me. —indieandyy
It’s hard not to think about you when you come to me in my dreams. It’s hard to get over you even though it’s been months. Never before have I had a women treat me so badly, yet, my heart still wants you to want me. You will be the stone around my neck until I die. I remember when we were in bed and I told you I loved you. When you looked me in the eye and said “I could never love a man like you” I felt my heart break. I wanted you for 5 years and you never knew it. When I had you for 10 months I was able to change your world. I opened doors for you. I gave from my heart. You’re so dark baby and I still love you even though you used me. It was never about who I am as a men, it’s what I do that turned you on, it’s how you milked me that kept you around. I was and still am just a stepping stone to you. You will be forever tattooed on my arm. The secret is…I wish we never met. I wish you didn’t know me. I wish you would leave my heart forever.
