Faking It For You
I wrote this in the fall of 2007. It wasn’t a literal expression of how I was feeling at the time but it is one of those songs that I look back on and go “holy shit, that’s what I was feeling.” The bridge is the most specific lyric — that idea that we’re doing what we’re supposed to be doing to work things out but in the back of my mind is a chunk of doubt. The rest of the song was just sort of ad hoc lyrics about those crappy feelings.
I remember when I wrote it, I had this idea for an amazing video for the song. I’ll tell you about it some day.
