Best Friend & My Lover was actually the very last song I wrote for my second album, Dreaming, that was just released on August 21st. I remember getting the first idea for it in the middle of the night. I wrote the first verse and a chorus, and recorded the melody into my voice memos. The next day I found the chords on my guitar, and from there I just wrote. I wrote the entire song that day.
I wrote this song about falling in love with my best friend, who I've actually had feelings for for a long time. We've been close friends for around 4-5 years now, and after all that time something in me said that I just had to say something to him. The verses in the song I think really capture that when you fall in love with someone, you really start to notice all the little things about that person, things that maybe other people wouldn't notice. I think there's something very special about finding your best friend and your lover all in one person, and that's what this song is about.
