For the musicians out there:

The reason I like “Too Blind to See” so much was because it was such a challenge. It sounded really organized when I played it on my own, but it took me a while to get the drummer to understand how the song was supposed to feel, and even longer to mix the song with producer Luis Venturin once it was done. I recorded a cool mess of chorus-drenched guitars which threw the entire song off, and I really don’t know how, but it ended up working. My favorite thing about tracking this song was taking several steps back from the mic and, while singing the chorus over the bass passage, getting closer and closer to it before the entire band came back.

For the music lovers:

This song tells a little story about my disappointment at a girl who I suspect has been cheating on me, which is why the song sounds so big and dramatic. Despite the theme, I love everything about this song, from the way it sounds to the way I feel when I play it. Definitely my favorite track on the album.

lyrics

Encoded in your face
Leaking through your voice is
“Let’s go our separate ways”
Leaving me no choice but to disobey
And overstay my welcome

I walked all the way here for you
I wonder what it is you want to prove
Am I too blind to see
I’m not the only one
I know there’s someone else besides me

Nodding with regret
As you step out of my car and
I see you walk away
Never thought you’d walk so far away
And not look back forever

I walked all the way here for you
I wonder what it is you want to prove
Am I too blind to see
I’m not the only one
I know there’s someone else besides me

I walked all the way here for you
I wonder what it is you want to prove
Am I too blind to see
I’m not the only one
I know there’s someone else besides me

I walked all the way here for you
Did you already know that ‘s just what I would do
Am I that predictable
Is that why you won’t talk
I know there’s someone else besides me
