Thoughts on Songs with Jill Scott

It's type of love song that describes a particular couple walk around a particular comfortable place which even they do fall in love but at the same talking about simple that they may have very much in common.what I like about it is the way that Jill Scott deliver a type of singing that very mellow and pretty but in this song,Jill plays a character of a girl who is excited about meeting a particular boyfriend that can have very much in common but always being in love,in the words,while you walk around the park you get to know the person,talk about themes that you might in common with and become more than just friends.
