Do you ever make up romantic nostalgias while listening to a particular song? “This song sounds like being drunk with you- sitting on the curb at 2am waiting for the train home, surrounded by electric, damp air, your arm over my shoulder, both transfixed by flickering eulogies of dead stars.” I do that all of the time. I ruin songs with memories that have not even happened.
Everyone eventually unravels themselves as a disappointment, and here I have masterfully inscribed each and every disappointment into a song as a painful reminder of what could have been. Of what isn’t.
