“Where’s the heart in me that made the one in you so cold?”

As you’ve probably noticed, I get a lot of inspiration from my favorite songwriters. In fact, I often create playlists to help me explore the themes of pieces I’m writing. One songwriter I return to again and again is the vastly underrated Jonatha Brooke. Her “So Much Mine” (recorded with Jennifer Kimball as The Story) came on my iPod the other day and I fell in love with it all over again. I defy you to find a more precise and haunting song about the relationship between a mother and her teenage daughter.
