There is a cruel bittersweetness that comes with retrospection, and this is the case with the collaborative track ‘Best For Me’, co-written for James’ 2005 debut ‘The Unlikely Lad’. The lyric "You saw the best for me / But I never realised..." echoes throughout as the pair showcase their soulful falsettos. There is a unique pain laced within the lyrics as we now know of James’ attempts to help Amy, especially when living together.

The jazzy trumpet  instrumentation falls perfectly as the track hints at a love that is not always easy to come by. James has repeatedly described Amy as his soulmate, and their platonic love lingers in the innocence of the lyrics and in the flourishing fanfare that closes the song. We see a side to Amy that is not lost in vulnerability, but in acceptance and comforted by it, with her best friend by her side.
