You’re the reason why I can’t listen to the same songs I used to I write songs about you all the time I bet I don’t run through your mind
I’ve given up on you, But it still hurts to know you’re not alone Don’t worry, I’ll keep out of your life and stay awake at night
It’s 4a.m. and you’re keeping me from closing these sleepy eyes Does the thought of me keep you up at night? Like the light on the ceiling of your bedroom Lately, my dog’s the only one around that listens to my problems
“'Hey Rachel’ was an especially cathartic song to write, reopening old wounds after nearly ten years. Writing the song demanded being painfully honest with both myself and my sister, neither of which I was particularly comfortable doing. I had to relive past feelings of fear, sorrow, anger, pain, and, most of all, regret. The song is an apology I’m relieved and proud to have finally said. The video was written and directed by Joshua Halling, who also spearheaded the video for Pretty Little Distance. I love his interpretation of the song - reimagining mine and Rachel’s story with an empowering, inspirational feel with a happy ending in hindsight. It’s such a beautiful and powerful music video, and I’m ecstatic to finally be sharing it.“ - Patty Pick up the new album ‘okay.’ at smarturl.it/okayasitis.
