this song was written at a time in my life when there were lots of fears, doubts and questions. i found myself in this powerful moment of realizing that the only reality for me at the time was my feelings. i think all of us at times hit rock bottom and for me, the best way to cope was through making music and writing down exactly what i was thinking and feeling in this state. “nothing seems real except the feelings that i feel” was the first thing i wrote down, and everything else in the song for me supports that original idea. though it was written during a time of confusion and sadness, ultimately for me it is a song of hope – “these wounds will heal”.
