01 Birmingham I drove through Birmingham once and also know someone who lived there briefly. I might be the least expert person there is on the subject of Alabama's capitol, if indeed it is. (It's not, I have been informed, Montogmery is.) It's kind of nervy to write about stuff you don't know, but songwriting itself is an act of nerve. I try not to let a lack of knowledge keep me from expressing something that feels right. With this one, I kind of stumbled upon the idea for the first verse and followed a thread to the end. I'm not even really sure what it's about, but it does sound like it's about something! So the best I can say is that it is a fairly honest lie... I hope you enjoy it.
