So, should i be talking about the songs? I suppose talking about them is the way to get to know me over the course of the day, right? I still don’t know where “This Tiny Trouble” came from – i know i had just been working on a song called “Up & Down” because my guitar was tuned really low, and i tuned it to what would’ve been EADF#BD if it hadn’t been tuned so low, and i found that funny little simple riff, and then it came to me that i was singing about some kind of tiny trouble nipping at someone’s heels. It was a strange song to write because i didn’t know at any point how it would end … it was like the story was using me to write it rather my using the story to write a song. I finally finished it with that somewhat open ending, which felt like a bit of a cop-out because it didn’t say anything about what was happening in the song. It wasn’t until last month that i realized i had been writing the song about an entirely real person and the reason i left the ending open was because i wasn’t sure what was going to happen to her. I still don’t quite know what the ending will be, but i really wish she got to hear the song i unintentionally wrote for her, so that’s why it’s first. I wrote a song for her intentionally which you’ll hear later.
