My favorite CT song, by a long way.
I see there's a controversy in the comments about what language she's singing in. It's English. As one commenter notes, it's all her interpretation. I've seen the lyrics, and it actually is possible to follow along.
The singer, Elizabeth Frazer, also worked with Massive Attack on "Teardrop" from the Mezzanine album. (You may know it as the theme from "House, M.D.") I found a live performance on YouTube, but unfortunately it lacks the clarity and power of the studio version.
