Album Notes
I had written the first song on this EP a while before I'd even thought to do an entire record around it. As I always love writing based on a certain theme rather than "write about anything," letting the song create a whole collection was the natural next step.

The Ballad of the Pirate Captain was obviously written from the perspective of Captain Hook. I wondered if he might have tired of never growing old, sailing the seas, and endlessly chasing a band of children. At some point, didn't he want to hang up his Jolly Roger and walk his basset hound around the block, waving at the neighbors? Perhaps no, but this was written for those moments in which he might have thought about settling down.

Follow You Everywhere was inspired by the crocodile who won't stop following Captain Hook once he'd tasted his hand. Clearly, the crocodile who sings this song, however, is a wee bit flirtier and has more enjoyable activities in mind once the victim is caught.

Throughout the story of Peter Pan is a love/hate relationship with parents - Peter Pan scorns them, yet takes Wendy back to be his mother. I thought Father Figure by George Michael was a perfect fit for the ambiguous role of parents in the book.

Dreaming is written from Wendy's perspective. She spends the most magical moments of her childhood in Neverland with Peter but has to wait for Spring every year to get her chance to experience more. It's that vague feeling you get when you are so hopelessly in love with someone and yet aren't completely certain of their love for you.

I'm a Lost Cause is based off of several themes in the story, particularly the idea of 'lostness' as being enchanting and the idea of never growing up. It's funny how we grow older yet always feel the same age, really. The only thing that reminds us of how old we are is the world around us that sends us AARP cards and sets up calendar kiosks in the mall every December. If we tucked ourselves away, maybe we never would grow old? Who knows? At the very least, growing up is a choice we can make.
