Singled Out: Namesake's Worlds Away
This was actually a last minute song added to the album. We were short a few songs and we were pushing to put one together as soon we could. What we didn't expect was to write the debut single for the album! Brad and I were literally sitting in a room stumped. He started playing a riff and I was really digging it. We started doing our usual song writing routine. I would hum some melodies and put lyrics to it later. We got a bunch of catchy melodies and later that night I sat alone in my room and came up with the story. I had just gotten through some hardships with a girl, in which I felt like i didn't know her anymore. We had grown so far apart that I felt like we were on different planets, thus, "Worlds Away" was born.
I spent the next few nights writing the lyrics, going through every emotion that crossed my mind during our time together, unfortunately the whole relationship was a struggle. We fought a lot over stupid stuff, her parents hated me for no legitimate reason, and it seemed like everything was against us. I guess that's why we tried so hard to make it work, but it was broken from the start.
My head was spinning over this song, it truly was an emotional roller coaster for me to write it. The lyrics came easy though, basically because I had lived the entire thing and it was still fresh on my mind. Eventually I was able to put the story to a close, leaving myself and her on different parts of the galaxy. But despite how far away we were from each other, I could see her world from a distance, and she will always be able to see mine.
