    How To Dress Well - "Face Again"

    Even before we saw the cinematic video (part two of three in the "What Is This Heart?" video series) for "Face Again," it was already a powerful song. The song is based around the uncertainties that can creep in to relationships, and the heaving, churning production reflects this mood as Tom Krell sings:

    Look into my face again and tell me what you wanna see I don’t think you know what’s best for me No, I don’t think you know what’s best for me Just kiss me on my face again and tell me what love’s supposed to be No, I don’t think you know what’s best for me No, I don’t even know what’s best for me

    Towards the end of the song, there is a glimmer of hope as the lyrics change to, "Yeah I know you know what's best for me," but even with those final moments of hope, the overall package of the song and video is ultimately a tearjerker.
