“My writing sessions are very lonely. I’m doing everything by myself. When I write stuff like this, I’m genuinely running around the room so hyped! This was a newer one. I have a few songs like this, where there’s no thought behind it. Some of the lyrics that are in there, I’m like, “Let me leave this in here until I write something better.” I just left it in there, it’s kinda sick that it’s stupid. There’s some stuff I’m saying in there that I don’t believe at all! My ex now, she could drive stick and there was my dream car, a BMW E30, I ended up buying one, but it was manual. So I couldn’t drive it! She ended up driving it, I’d be a passenger princess on the way home. I couldn’t drive it, but every night I would drive around the suburbs just destroying the transmission of this car. I just couldn’t help but drive it.” 


Can't Drive Stick is out now!
