The singer makes his way to the demiurge to ask him about the secret of life. “If he tells me all he knows / About the way his river flows / I don’t suppose / It’s meant for me.”

As an accompaniment for his musically most ambitious song, Drake envisaged an arrangement based on the English composer Frederick Delius. This overwhelmed the skills of Drake’s friend and arranger Robert Kirby, who turned to composer Harry Robinson for help.

In the London suburb of Barnes they devised an impressionistic musical flow in which the whole world of the song is contained.
