Literally came to me last night in my sleep at 3 and that's when I recorded it. The hushed vocals kinda go with it...

Tone thought I sent a good song
But he don’t like the vocal style
And so he was conflicted
But he had guile
He played the AC/DC
With my sandpaper cries

Half reading along with the screaming
Half-singing along with the words
Read along softly with my song
Tone read along softly with my song
Telling his story about Uber
Read along softly with my song

I found it so charming that he read along with you. And now both The Fugees and Roberta's versions have been done! Fab!
