The Love Story behind “Things”

About Colin James

“Things,” Colin James’ latest song illustrating the “deepest part of [himself]. Unable to name what those parts are, Colin identifies with Allan Watt’s notion of “things.” He uses “things” as a stand-in for what he’s yet to discover. Simultaneously, Colin’s song talks about “beautiful chaos”—which, in essence, speaks on love.
To love is a rollercoaster. Colin likewise talks about creating something out of nothing. His music anchors him to the world and his experiences. Moreover, it ties everything together so he can reflect and understand himself better. Ultimately, Colin’s music reflects his desire to share, communicate, and create narratives to connect with others.
