about

This song came out of just resampling some elements from "Riverbed." I thought it would be cool if, after the second chorus, it went back to the held out chord from the bridge and morphed into a new song. There are a lot of similarities tone wise: the long guitar delay, the trumpet and clarinet, some of the same pads, and the vocal sound. It's one of those things you might not notice unless someone told you. The string arrangement came from me playing in a bunch of takes of bowed guitar, and then taking those improvised melodies, and orchestrating them across cello, viola, and violin one octave up. Maddie was out of town, so my buddy Ben Walding tracked all ofthe violin in my room, reading the piano roll off the computer screen.

This song is about experiencing infatuation for the first time, and not knowing how to handle it.

lyrics

I'm in the car as I wait, I've never had this feeling

To pass the time I read through all our first few conversations

I've never had this feeling



Do you really wanna know the truth or

is that something I keep from you?

Should I hold back or be free?

How do I keep you from leaving?

I've never had this feeling



I hear a sound when you breathe

Are we here or dreaming?

Our worlds collide

Next thing you know is only where you're standing

You take me away from hurting



Then you put your lips together,

meet me halfway across the room

The hours go by, we stay awake

How could I mistake this feeling?

I've never had this feeling
