It’s one thing to be loved and to lose that love. It’s another thing to think you’re loved when you’re not. To be lead to believe that you’re important to someone when in reality you mean very little to them. So little in fact, that they can toss you aside without a second thought. Without considering how their recklessness will effect you and your emotions.
I started writing Arson in the heat of the the aftermath, or so I thought at the time, of a situation like this. I was hurt, I was angry, I couldn’t grasp the idea that a person could actually care so little for another person and treat them so terribly when they claimed to care so much. I left the song for a while.
Nick: The four of us got together one night and Maddie played the beginning of a song that she had started to write. We kept exchanging ideas back and forth and we eventually came up with the rest of the song. We recorded it but it was windy outside (we were outside) and the recording was not happy. So we had to re-record it and now we are happy to share our first collaborative song with you guys.
Justin: I don’t know what to say guys. I’m writing this in bed with a crazy migraine. Sleep is calling and yet I’d give anything to be sitting at Park benches or in a cramped trailer talking about song lyrics and forbidden picked out guitar leads. I haven’t known friendship like this, Found through music and a love for sharing it with others. I want to thank the three of you and anyone else who might listen to this. What we’ve done and are doing is something I feel privileged to be a part of. I can’t wait to see what’s next <3
Another Late night guys. As exhausted as I was and as badly as I wanted to go to sleep, I couldn’t rest until I got some of this off my mind… off my heart, and onto a page. What do you guys think? I may need some help finishing it. I’ll post the lyrics again as always so you can read along.
