As I grew into my teenage years I met a girl who had schizophrenia. Plot twist: At the time, I was too young to understand that her actions and words were coming from a place where a severe mental illness lived, and I dated her. For a year. The most turbulent, mindfuck of a year thus far. And that’s saying a lot. This song recalls the feelings that come up when I think about having first met her—and the first time she called me. At midnight.
