This song spilled out of me at the airport while I was waiting to pick up a friend. I'd just stopped seeing someones with whom I felt really good about myself, really free and beautiful. I've always seen so much beauty in relationships, and in my mind, the more connections, the better. The more simultaneous entanglements, the more complicated and compelling my feelings will be, and so will be my story.

I wrote this song in high school about a girl who was kind of mean to me, but I'm accidentally reclaiming it. Every time I hear it recently I think about my girlfriend, and how she sometimes lashes out in little ways when she's scared, which is a lot, because being with me is scary. I think about those moments, and how they really are about how brave she is and how much she cares for me. I think about it all the time.
I'm just a guy who writes music and then plays it. I feel like it's pretty straight-forward.
