2010 Singles: "From Above"

The collaboration between Nick Hornby and Ben Folds, Lonely Avenue, was a mixed bag (although it's possible I haven't properly listened to it, just shuffling through songs instead of start to finish). I really took to "From Above" though, and the lyrics really are compelling (a word I'm sure I overuse). It's the antithesis of a love song, the "never even thought to fall in love" song.
"Just this vague notion that something was wrong
A naked absence, a phantom limb
An itch that could never be scratched"
