I was mulling over which song to post from Figure 8, and decided that, just maybe, people have listened to enough depressing songs already! This is about as close to a love song as you’ll get from Elliott. The chorus “What I used to be will pass away and then you’ll see / that all I want now is happiness for you and me” is both a very sweet goodbye, and sad because he couldn’t find happiness in his life.
