This is a song I wrote back toward the beginning of 2016 when I was playing at a cafe in Richmond every morning called Cafe Pascal. It's very inspired by the songwriting style of Jim Croce.

******************************

When I wrote it, it was very much stream of consciousness and resembled what a melodramatic, hopeless-romantic, jilted lover would wish to say to someone who dumped him. It reminded me of how over-attached I used to be to girlfriends I had in high school, so I stuck the line in there about being only 15 and sort-of made the song a tribute to my teenage self and what a hopeless romantic I was.
************************
I don't know why you left
All I know if you left me
With a broken heart
Why did you do it?
Well, let's go through it
Right from the start

Going over every note I wrote to you
Trying to find out where I went wrong

I want to call and see
If you'll give me
A little clarity
Why do I take this
So seriously?
I'm only 15.

So who was it?
Was it me? Was I the one?
Or was that what I had to believe?

People tell me I'm too young to settle down.
They tell me don't expect all that much from you.
They're always saying: I should be content to run round.
But how can I love you like I do?
