Could you speak on the context of and elucidate upon the meaning in your song DsharpG us please? I love the words! and though I eventually fell in love with the unique sound of it, the words and the tone they are sung in struck me as having a well thought upon meaning. I utterly respect if it is too personal to share. Keep making great music

Thanks for reaching out. I actually wrote it about trying to date someone that was a born again christian. And although I was very fond of him, I wasn't able to get past the intensity of his beliefs, but upon further introspection, I find my ideas on love and humanity were quite parallel to his beliefs. This song was an experiment in exploring love with the unfamiliar. X
