On the extraordinary "Shorty Got Her Eyes on Me," Jones develops his theme further, with added mystery and depth and a slower tempo. It's the middle of the night now; they're either in or just outside or leaving a club. The car, whose top promises to come down, waits outside. He likes "the little thing around your navel," he tells her; he tells her he has a jar of bubbles they could blow. He considers that, after all this time, he might be leaving alone. "Tell them that you're riding with me," Jones pleads, and in context, accentuated with slow, molasses-heavy harmonies hovering atop a groove so supple and diaphanous it could all just disappear, the impact is dizzying. The song is about trying to make romantic fantasy match real life— and the trouble Jones has as he tries to do this in the coolest, most elegant way soul music in 1999 can imagine.
