I was kind of worried, I thought I was being a bit syrupy and a bit soppy. But at the end of the day, my fallback was, well, I’m kind of being honest, I don’t bounce down the streets in a fog of love, you know. But these songs try to capture a moment of clarity, epiphany, of stillness and a belonging that maybe comes with finding understanding in a relationship. I think there’s a great myth about artists’ pain and love being burning brighter and hurting harder than any normal persons. It’s a myth that I buy into, you know, you think they must go through intolerable suffering and also love like we could never love to achieve those heights of beauty. But in actual fact I think that you know people are just people, and those songs really are just trying to capture that brief glimpse of clarity in what is otherwise the high turnover world that we live in.
