WHAT HEARTS ARE FOR

This is a B-Side from Gun Shy. Wrote this with Josh Zegan and Jeff Sojka, the guys I did "Smoke and Stars Align" with. The idea that you don’t really get the benefit of relationship until you navigate some tough times. There’s something about making it out the other side that brings hearts closer together. It's scary though, because, if you’re anything like me, you avoid pain at all costs. It’s hard to believe that pain can give birth to life, but it does (just look at literal child birth!) I love when pop songs carry deeply palatable truths.
