It's a dreamy pop ditty with a music-box feeling and a Lou Reed-ish repeat over the verse, giving it a rumbling sort of poetic determination and a persistent half-smile. The result is an elfish vocal over the gooey-sweet confection of a simple love story.
The single piano notes, and the terrifically nuanced string section; the bells at the start of every bar: this song is perfectly manicured to sound like a lovers' happy parade. It's a wink and a nudge from the girl next door who has been noticing you.
