Whenever I hear this album, I can't help but think of you. Listening to it is like being wrapped in a comfy old sweater, worn out in all the right places and fitting me just so. The songs still make me feel really happy and light, which is odd because in a certain light, those were dark times. Mostly for me but maybe for you too? Of course I'll never know because you weren't exactly the sharing type.

The weirder phenomena is that other songs. Recent songs. Songs that landed many years after you long deserted, remind me of you. Weird isn't it? How music can do that. How vocals strung by a stranger can trigger such deep emotions, drumming up ghosts from the past. It must be the melancholy. Or the bitterness. Or the sweet.
