i had a dream last night
and when i opened my eyes
your shoulder blade, your spine
were shorelines in the moon light
new worlds for the weary
new lands for the living
i could make it if i tried
i closed my eyes, i kept on swimming
I had a dream last night
And when I opened my eyes
Your shoulder blade, your spine
Were shorelines in the moonlight
New worlds for the weary
New lands for the living
I could make it if I tried
I closed my eyes I kept on swimming
I'm a - I'm a big fan of marriage. Whoever you are, getting married is a hopeful act. When it didn't work out for me, it was a shock, I felt like a failure. It was the worst moment and [...] I was - I was in Canada. I started writing songs because I didn't know what else to do, you know, and the songs were so mean, and so angry, and so full of, like, rage.. and I found that I had to wait, and as time went on those things changed, and they became - love, and all these other things -
Well, you found your new wife during that grieving time.
And the album transitions from this kind of angry, splintery songs of despair into kind of more hopeful and kind of rediscovering of love kind of like springing from the ashes.
Yeah! Yeah, I feel like that's what art should be is, is this, is a biological change, you know? Our anger is in ourselves, you know, it's like silt in a riverbed that just needs to wash out, and it's going to take time. You have to intend to forgive somebody and let that be enough for the time being.
