The men hit the opening ‘ooh’s’ with great harmony and blend. Tim is wearing a gray sweater while Peter wears a white collared shirt. They each sing a portion of the lyrics, and each provides different harmony notes through the song. At certain points, we get a split-screen view of the guys.

More elaborate harmonies, along with a great deep bass voice, develop through the song. The emotional lyrics of lost love are echoed in the final line by Peter, who sings, ‘And so it goes, you’re the only one who knows.’
