“This song is very dear to me. I wrote it a while back during a time where I was in between lives. Still saying goodbye to the previous Julien, already halfway into a new me. I wasn’t quite sure where I was heading (maybe cause I’m a gemini? ) which was scary, but I also knew that things were going to be better.”
A ‘matter of fact’ kind of warmth, drench the warm melancholic acceptance of ‘Shivers’. The folk driven story telling, resides with the understanding in awkward steps of life and probable success in aims and goals.
Failure is a built in success tool. Managing disappointments, drive to to that promised land.
