Short acoustic number. Background light rail.

Is it about a person? Is it about a city? I have no idea, but I wish I was better at acoustic guitar eq.

Your voice is very reminiscent of Kurt Cobain's. That, the harmonies, and the ambient noise turn what could have been a whiny repetitive downer into something much more intimate.

Thanks for the feedback, and I love "whiny repetitive downer", I've certainly gone down that path a few times.

Yeah, this really works as a whole for me too. Vibes a little Elliott Smith for me, with the mixing and the sense of place about the song.

And honestly I love love love the overloaded ambiguity of the chorus spelling-out bit.
