everything’s a mess, everything’s insane. my mom, my dad, everything i though about them? lies, lies, lies, and nothing makes any sense anymore.
The night we couldn’t quite forget / When we decided to move the furniture so we could dance / Baby, like we stood a chance
Out Of The Woods is one of my favorite songs on this album because one of the goals I set out to accomplish when I made this album was that I wanted to make sure that these songs sounded exactly the way the emotions felt.
This song is about the fragility and breakable nature of some relationships. This was a relationship where I was kind-of living day to day wondering where it was going, if it was going to go anywhere, if it was going to end the next day. It was a relationship where you never felt like you were standing on solid ground. And that kind of a feeling brings on excitement but also extreme anxiety and a frantic feeling of wondering.
And this song sounds exactly like that frantic feeling but it stresses that even if a relationship is breakable and fragile and full of anxiety, it doesn’t mean that it isn’t worthwhile, exciting, beautiful, and all of the things that we look for.
the lack of control I have over myself in a bookstore is actually ridiculous
