I spent a long time looking at those pictures, and then I got so into them, I mean really in to them. I found myself wanting to see things from the perspective of the characters she had made. So the song is basically me having this desire to take over her spot in the picture - forever. It's a dialogue. I try to do it, it's fine for a bit, but I end up getting super tired because I can't hold the pose as long as she can. And then I imagine I'd rather be an inanimate object. Like I'd rather just be her dress or the glass that she's holding, the match that she's striking, the book she is getting off the shelf, and stuff like that. All these objects are endowed perfectly by her, the way she handles them. It's very romantic to me, not in a lovey-dovey way at all but in the way the work feels...livable. It's a livable world she made."
