i spent the week thinking i’d do one song, and then it lay there flat. so on sunday afternoon i started messing around with a melody and a couple hours later i had this song.
two bits of inspiration: first, i was listening to the la’s a bunch, especially ‘looking glass,’ and second, i wanted to write a tune that kristin and i could perform in harmony. that’s pretty much it. the lyrics came from working out the nonsense words i’d been singing when i worked out the harmony. they came together nicely, i think. sad, but romantic. but sad.
