Song: "Strange Figurines"
Album: Strange Figurines

"Recently, a close friend of mine told me he wanted advice.  He had fallen in love with a girl who lived with her boyfriend," Scott Butler tells Rolling Stone. "She gave him every indication that she wanted to leave her boyfriend and be with him [but] she never outright said, 'I want you, not him.' He wondered whether he should risk their friendship by telling her how he felt.  He never did. I wrote this song for him."
