This year was the hardest year of my life. I'm growing into adulthood and I found myself. More importantly I found my true love. I found the hardships of being in a matured relationship, over this year I have grown to love her, not only her, but her hair, her eyes, her fingers, her nails, the freckle on her right hand index finger, the way she laughs, the way she sleeps, the way she holds my hand, the way she acts when she is frustrated, her life, her mother, her cat, her favorite foods, her personality, her feelings, her emotions, and her spirit. I'm in love. I'm growing up. I'm finishing school and moving onto a degree in Art History. I can't wait to have my beautiful daughter in my life when I'm done with school. I'm so thankful for everything. I'm so thankful for you. I love you.
This album basically sums up the past year of my life. Thank you.
Child: The meaning behind this is very hard to talk about, I'll just leave it at that.
France: Inspired by watching a short film I saw of a man filming his girlfriend in Paris on a Super 8 camera. I wanted to do the same thing so bad with you so I just made a song for the idea of the future instead.
Abroad: The feeling of studying abroad fills my body when I think about it. I can't wait to leave the states and fly to some beautiful place in the world and experience the different culture while studying art.
University: This song is about how hard it was while she was away at Uni even though it is cheerful.
Young Adults: This song is just about that hardships of growing up and falling in love with someone. Learning how to be an adult and to be with them.
Tokyo: This song was inspired by the scene in Lost In Translation where Scarlett Johansson and Bill Murray are riding around Tokyo in a Japanese taxi to Sometimes by My Bloody Valentine. I was watching this with her and I found my second favorite scene in film. I really felt I loved you that night. It was very dreamy.
