What is the best song I ever wrote?
by Kevin on July 29, 2009
………..I’m asked that question alot. I would say “Nothing”……….because I had to, I needed to……it was something that I had to address. It took me a couple of years to process what had happened before I could write it. I procrastinated to the very end. I find that with songs that I feel very strongly about.
It was the last song recorded on the True cd, and happened on the last night of recording at about 9pm.
I had always envisioned Matt Rollings playing piano on it, and I knew that although I didn’t have a third verse written…. I would be inspired by his piano playing, and be able to write the last verse. I did.
What you hear on the recording of “Nothing” is the first take, and the last verse came out on the mic while recording. Because I had to say those things.
