Many Hours

Songfacts®:

  • Vesper is the first album from Mynx, who is a singer/songwriter from Oregon. He told us about this song:
    Rhythm of images. Images of rhythm. A history lesson and dire predictions of the future. This song was written in the Spring, but it should have been written in the Winter. "Some days I've wished I was never born." This is the only thing that all people can truly agree on. We hate that fact. Some days we wish we were born someone else, is what we really mean. We are guilty with envy. We recorded it with swinging drums and left it bare and sparse. The arrangement is in the words. It is a poem that got commandeered by two loose chords that never feel like resolving. The song floats along selfishly. Another version with complete lyrics exists, but it is 12 minutes long.
  • Mynx explains his songwriting process: "I write true songs when the moon is full, mostly. When its not, I tell lies and invent things. I like to tinker. I feel like Edison. He was constantly at work. Formulating. Stealing ideas. He was brilliant, but also a sponge. He was ruthless when it came to his work. I can write a better song than Edison though."
