MY FAVORITE CONCERT EXPERIENCE: Arctic Monkeys, 2009 in a relatively small venue.

I WROTE THIS SONG BECAUSE…  Happiness and disharmony within a marriage are not mutually exclusive and in turn create unique beauty that I tried to promote through this song. I wrote this song as disharmony was beginning to form within a young marriage, lyrically promoting self-independence and happiness through hard times.
