about

In Love with a Concept:

I wrote this song about a girl. Or a series of girls. Or a particular brand of infatuation I know I'm given to. But after a thousand listens, I think it might actually be about god.

Valley Home Sessions:

In 2016 we sold our old house and bought a new one. Fixing up the old and searching for the new completely dominated our lives, and ate up all the time I would normally dedicate to writing and recording new music. In 2017, I decided to make up for lost time by making the new house the centerpiece of my next project. For the Valley Home Sessions each instrument will be recorded in a different area of the house, each with a single microphone (including the drums). The idea is to capture as much of the natural ambience (aka "bad acoustics) of the house as possible.

lyrics

You are
The words I read
When words were all that I would let in
You stayed
Inside my head
And now that's where you live
I made
Room for you in
The gaps where other loves should have been
Had I
Been open then
But you were better written than them

'Cause I found you in the text
And I found myself
In love with a concept

I know it makes no sense
I can't help myself
I'm in love with a concept

You tried
To let me know
That you just couldn't be what I need
But I
Could not let go
Of the perfect you that I had conceived
The seed
Worked deep inside
The fallow unsown tracts of my mind
And I'll feed
This dream of mine
'Til it withers on the vine

'Cause I found you in the text
And I found myself
In love with a concept

I know it makes no sense
I can't help myself
I'm in love with a concept

I've lost all common sense
To false pretense
I'm in love with a concept

When words are all that's left
If I've failed your test
I'm still in love with the concept
