Come on in, Jimmy. Hey, how are you? I'm good. Have a seat. Thank you, thank you. You doing OK? Yeah, I'm doing good. Great, great. As good as I can be. Yeah, good deal? Oh, yeah. So what are you going to play for us? A song called "Everywhere." Did you write it? Yes. How long ago? Oh, I think we wrote it in like-- let me see and think back. Like, February. Oh, this year. Yeah, this year. OK. You write a lot? Too much. What, how can you write too much? Nah, I think I write too much to the point where, sometimes, I realize I need to live in between songs so I can have something to write about. Yeah. You know. And I went on this binge, where I wrote every day for about two and a half, three months. Then it got to the point where I was like, I've got nothing else to say. Come visit with me. I'll tell you a lot of stuff. That's what I need. That's what I need. You need to hang out with some depressing people and get some ideas, huh? I'm telling you. Because I write-- say I'll write a bunch, and then I'll write like eight terrible songs, and I'll write one OK one. Then I'll write one kind of good one. Then I'll write eight more terrible songs.

You was all right. (SINGING) You know the black and white photo of the nurse and the sailor locking lips out in Times Square. And had a sunset kiss, this guy last July in that Marina del Rey salty air. And girl, I want to kiss you like that. Yeah, I want to kiss you like that. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Powell River Bank. French kiss on that love-locked bridge in Paris, make out on that old flower couch at your parents'. And right now, right here, I swear. Girl, I want to kiss you everywhere. Anywhere at all, up against the wall, or tangled in cotton sheets. From the curl on your neck to the small on your back. Yeah, I'll take it slow, I'll make it sweet. Oh, I want to kiss you right there. Yeah, I want to kiss you right there. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Powell River Bank. French kiss on a love-locked bridge in Paris, make out on that old flower couch at your parents'. And right now, right here, I swear. Girl, I want to kiss you everywhere. I want to kiss you everywhere. Just like that black and white photo of a nurse and the sailor locking lips out in Times Square. And up on top of the Empire State or by a campfire on Pow...
