Day 2: Asleep
Journal Entry #2: Being Mature In My Relationships
Today's song is best explained through a story.
I dated a girl several years ago, whom I'd come to love, maybe. But at the time of dating her, I didn't love her. I betrayed her, and it led to our undoing. Even through that, she offered me respect.
It wasn't until about 2 years later had I seen the error of my ways. I was suddenly able to reflect on what I damaged, what I had given up, what I had put her through - and I felt awful.
It was the summer of 2012 when I finally grew up - under a hot sun, through panic attacks, to a buzzy indie soundtrack.
During that time, I had ended up recording an album to process what I was going through, and it was the first -real- time I exercised music to really get something out of me. It was the first real time I embraced who I was, turned it into something, and fearlessly put it out there. The album is called Goodbyenary Code (click the title to check it out). It's old, it's raw, it's rough, and it's one of my favorite things I've ever done.
The girl I had dated caught wind of the record, and messaged me with words of appreciation. She noted that she understood what I was saying, and felt an appreciation that a work of art was made for her. This song - Asleep - is about finally landing on that place of mutual respect, years later.
