Q. Hi Oracle,
In the acoustic version of In My Place being released for Oxfam's video, I could swear that I hear Chris singing "How long must you wait for *him*", and not "How long must you wait for *it*". Is it true that perhaps on an older version of the song, it was "him" and not "it"?

The Oracle replies:

The lyrics have never been "him" in any early versions - always "it" but yeah, for whatever reason it either sounds like Chris is singing "him" or he very well may be!
