First we'll take a look at the fuzz melody played in the intro. It seems a bit counter-intuitive to dial in such a gnarly fuzz tone for a slow ballad like this, but it really works well in an almost psychedelic way. It really adds character to the song and sets us up for the longing vocals that will guide us through this confession of loneliness.

Be sure to pay attention to the rhythmic phrasing of the fuzz melody, that's where a lot of the character of the line is coming from - make sure to grab all the pauses that appear. But also be sure to sustain the notes just the right amount.
