Resurrecting this blog… to “Shatter” it.

No, really. Been obsessed with this song since this show back in March. The melody sticks in your head way after the last note and the lyrics…

Take my head places I sometimes don’t want to go.

"I see you and I start
Unraveling faster
It’s clear you’ve moved on
And I don’t matter…”

Even if you haven’t pined after the worst break up ever, have you ever been affected by someone so deeply that to see him or her makes you feel like you’re falling apart? “Unraveling” is such a brilliant and perfect word to describe it. It doesn’t have to be a negative thing either, I’ve been so excited to see someone, my brain basically dribbled out by the time they showed up. All I could do was cling on happily and not let go.

So, anyway, the master wordsmith and melody maker is playing again next week. New music he says.
