I’ve been sitting here thinking about all the things I wanted to apologize to you for. All the pain we caused each other. Everything I put on you. Everything I needed you to be or needed you to say. I’m sorry for that. I’ll always love you ‘cause we grew up together and you helped make me who I am. I just wanted you to know there will be a piece of you in me always, and I’m grateful for that. Whatever someone you become, and wherever you are in the world, I’m sending you love. You’re my friend to the end.
"There’s a song called “I Kill Giants” that was supposed to be on the first record but wasn’t totally finished at that point. It’s so special to me because it’s a reconstructed memory of when I lost my mother; she died when I was young, around seven. It was the biggest moment of my young life. It wasn’t until years later that Thom gave me this graphic novel called I Kill Giants. There’s this character in it that I related a lot to and it encouraged me to finish the song.”
