Flashback to the 3rd November, 2001. I was 19. This song was another one I tried writing away from my natural style. I'm quite mathematical even though I never particularly liked maths. I like things to be even, and symmetrical, so the most natural form of writing for me is measured rhyming. It's balanced, it's even, and it all wraps up neatly. For this song I was experimenting with intentionally making things NOT rhyme, it was a challenge for me, as even reading back over it now, it doesn't sit as well with me as something that follows a clever rhyme. It's not symmetrical and is uneven, something that aggravates my balanced way of thinking.
I wrote this song after a particularly lovely experience. To the other people involved, it probably wasn't even a blip on their radar, and they certainly wouldn't remember it now, but to me it was one of those times in life where you realise that you deserve better.
