A new song – this one about that tiny bit of melancholy that you didn’t even know you had.
I wrote this song without intending to. I had been (and am still in the process) of writing a silly song about online dating entitled “I want to date your online profile (but its obvious thats not you)” about the highs and lows of searching for love through a keyboard. (current favourite lyric from that effort: “you interrupt me, try to one-up me – and thats something your online profile would never do.” But I digress.)
But somehow, while writing that silly song another feeling came – that frustration at searching for what is just out of reach, pining for the unavailable…all simmering away in a way you didn’t even know bothered you until you write a poignant song about it all. In that sense its lovely as I learned a bit more about myself, on the other hand I can’t help but feel its a bit overdramatic or at least seperate from me and how I’m actually feeling. And then I think the mediocre men who collectively inspired it probably are unworthy of the lovely final product.
