BEHIND THE SONG: Domi, Andrea and I met through mutual collaborators who thought we would write together well, and I think they were right! They showed up at my house on a Saturday morning, meeting for the first time. You never know what to expect when you write with new people for the first time. Sometimes it is a total success, and other times a disaster. This was definitely the beginning of a wonderful friendship for me. For one, you could not meet two people who are more geniune than these girls. And talented... I mean really. Killer pipes and musicianship to match. We spent about 7 hours together talking, getting to know each other, drinking multiple cups of toasted rice green tea, opening up to each other, and writing this song, one that I am very proud of. This song comes from a very honest place, both myself and Andrea pulling from personal experiences. While I can't tell Andrea's story for her, I can share mine. Years ago, I was in a relationship with a really great guy for several years. I was young, just finishing high school, with lots of huge dreams. He and his family treated me like their family, and the thought and reality of losing all of them in my life was one of the hardest things I've ever gone through. There is nothing you can do to heal the hearts of people who you would never dream of hurting but had no choice but to be honest with yourself. It hit me suddenly one day that he was not the right person for me. I couldn't explain it very well to him or anyone else at the time, but my heart knew what I had to do. Sometimes the best songs come from a very real place.
