  • - This song is about the universal struggle

  • of long distance relationships.

  • Or even a one way attraction,

  • like a unreciprocated one.

  • This song was what they call a sneeze.

  • Like it all came out at once.

  • It was really fast.

  • It was essentially done in two days.

  • You're so hot you're hurting my feelings

  • was something I told someone in a moment

  • where someone was looking painfully hot.

  • And I had a writing session set up with

  • Dan Nigro and Teddy Geiger and

  • before I even went to the session

  • I was like we have to use this line.

  • It's the chorus of something.

  • Long distance relationships definitely have

  • like psychological calendars in them.

  • I feel like when you go two weeks

  • without seeing someone it's fine.

  • It's chill.

  • And once you pass the third week,

  • stuff starts getting a little weird.

  • Like is this a thing?

  • Are we still together?

  • Is this real?

  • Am I wasting my time?

  • Am I wasting their time?

  • You start asking a lot of questions after day 21.

  • So this song take place on day 25.

  • You're out there killing the game

  • is kind of referencing that feeling of

  • when you're really proud of whatever someone's doing

  • that's taken them away from you

  • but at the same time you kind of wish it wasn't happening

  • so you could snatch them back.

  • But damn I miss you tonight.

  • Night time is always the most brutal right?

  • Like finally when all the texts and emails

  • and people contacting you stop and you're suddenly

  • left on your own with that gaping void of silence.

  • Yeah I was at a party and this song came on

  • that reminded me a lot of a drive I'd taken with someone.

  • And it just made me start tearing up

  • and have to go excuse myself.

  • When I really miss someone,

  • I stalk them on the internet.

  • Any photo content I can get,

  • whether it's like going through DMs

  • or going through old texts or photos

  • I've screen grabbed and saved on my phone.

  • Photos helps but photos also make it worse.

  • In order for someone to be so hot it causes physical pain,

  • they either have to be like extremely gorgeous

  • or like a wizard of love or both

  • and that's just like the worse.

  • I get the most lonely,

  • honestly in really dense social situations.

  • Like if there's someone I miss,

  • I miss them most

  • when I'm out.

  • Like at a party when it's like

  • ugh this would be so much better if you were here.

  • Or in like crowded places that feel kind of alienating.

  • I just feel like that's often when I miss someone the most.

  • I think the best way to get to know me

  • is probably doing like

  • a show and tell of all you're favorite stuff.

  • Like your favorite YouTube videos, you're favorite songs

  • and just doing the full data dump.

  • That's my favorite way.

  • X-rated dreaming can pretty much happen anywhere.

  • Some places are more convenient than others.

  • When I wrote the song,

  • I was essentially living tri-coastally,

  • between London, LA and New York.

  • Kind of like drawing this triangle making this record.

  • So it's more like coast to coast to coast dreaming for me.

  • While New York was literally my home at the time,

  • that's where my apartment was,

  • LA and London just felt like these polar opposites for me.

  • London is such a kind of historical and romantic and like,

  • for me it's kind of like a slightly goth place as well

  • with all the the moodiness of the weather and the history.

  • Also have a lot of friends there.

  • And then LA feels the opposite.

  • It's just like work business like the hustle.

  • Part of the hustle that I hate the most is

  • checking in to flights with lots of bags.

  • There's just no way to make that fun.
