Here, FKA Twigs longs for clarification from a lover whose commitment may not be built on a foundation as solid as hers, unafraid of the fallout because she just can’t go on any longer without knowing.

With producer Arca helping her, the track chokes and churns, threatening to suffocate her as she tries to stay above the tides trying to drown her. “Tell me you’re one that I can call, even if you choke,” she sings, and the sentiment, like much of her music thus far, hanging on the often blurry line between desire and obsession.
