And now, I have to sing a very sad song with a stuffed animal cat on the piano
For me I get asked one question more than other questions. This is the most frequently asked question when I am just out in public people ask me “What do you write songs about? How do you know what to write a song about? “ .And I…I think for me the answer to that is that when I write songs is like if I had the opportunity to put a message in a bottle and throw it out into the ocean and the idea that the person that I feel that way about and the person I was writing the letter to might someday get it, or they might not. That’s kind of where I start with. What are you feeling that you’re too scared to tell someone, but you wish they knew? Whether it’s good like ‘I secretly think you’re wonderful’ or ‘I think about you everyday’ or ‘I secretly miss you but I can’t ‘cuz you’re bad for me’ or ‘what you did really hurt me and broke my heart and I’m still not ok about it.’ Writing a song is like saying whatever you wanted to say to that person in that moment to the person that you think that about and you feel that way about and then just being able to push pause and never see the way that they respond. So that’s what I think are the best songs. This song is one of those that I wrote in the middle of the night because I was too afraid to write it in an email or say it on a phone call. It’s about how as much as I tried to forget everything about this person, I just, the more I try to forget it I just remembered it all too well.
