Haley wrote this song about the first few months of our relationship which were similar to the first few months of any relationship. A period of looking for flaws, weighing insecurites, finding ways to collate your partner’s entire life in with yours, judging whether you could fit together at all. This is a terrifically stressful experience which now feels a little nostalgic. Looking back on it brings forth the same sweet smiles as watching old home movies.
Thus the decision to shoot it on Super 8 as we trekked around Vancouver for backdrops of all the most important spots from our life together. I wanted it to look sort of like it was shot over months or years, to make the video feel like how Haley can make her songs feel: the longest journey over just a few minutes.
