revealed to us in our interview that this is one of the first songs that she ever wrote. Earl added it was inspired by a long-distance relationship that she was in: "'Pacific Love' is one of the first songs I ever wrote…At the time it was written, I was emerging from a very painful, but also very passionate relationship with someone from another country. I loved him. I knew he loved me too in many ways, but he couldn't give me what I needed and eventually he broke my heart. When the song came to me I was at the point in my grieving where I was fed up with the hurt and thought; 'enough is enough. I am just going to decide to believe that he loved me and that I mattered to him so I can finally release this and move on.' I had to claim my own value in order to pick myself up 'by my bootstraps' - so to speak. This song has been an important companion and healer for me. But even now when I play it I feel very deeply – for that person and for the fact that human relationships can be so broken, even when people care about one another deeply."
