how old are you?
Most of the time, when I really think about it, I end up writing songs about something that used to happen. I write about the past, looking back on it. I very rarely ever write about what is happening in the moment, or what will happen in the future. I find something healing, I guess, in writing about what used to be. And maybe, that’s because you can only have really seen something when you’re looking back on it. And maybe that’s because I only write about things if I can remember them all too well.
