The guitar chords are all very basic, and the vocal lines are soft and stay in the most accessible registers. There is no special technical proficiency or exertion behind it, yet it's a very compelling and evocative piece. Having seen and absolutely loved the show, I also feel there's a certain synergy between the tune and the characters and narrative.
Great album too. I've been digging this song a bunch, and the rest of the album is of a similar style.
