With Abby, what would never work on paper has a way of coming out natural and swinging, this song being a perfect example. There's simply no one else on the planet who could pull this off. Piao means "floating," and Abby sings in Mandarin, "This morning I woke up to no big plans, no great ambitions, just floating, floating, floating..." It's hard to explain the mix of influences in this song.
