Lyrics are really important to me. I’ve been writing for about 14 years in a lot of different mediums, but I’ve never done song writing before, which is an interesting process. I love the challenge of trying to convey something in just a couple of minutes. I also really like telling my own story, because for so long I worked in fiction and was writing about things that I hadn’t personally experienced. For this album, I wouldn’t say it’s a diary. Some things, like ‘Ocean Floor,’ are more metaphorical, but there isn’t a single track that I didn’t feel completely connected to when I was writing and recording it.
