Behind the music

Read a bit about I Could Do This All Night directly from Ben Kessler

i started this song in the fall of 2021 after a fight with a family member. i felt so misunderstood and frustrated by how childish and inconsequential the fight was - on my way home i wrote the first lyric “you said some things you never meant that you thought you did.” as time passed, the fight that started with my family member shifted to one between me and myself. i was so disappointed at how much energy i let the entire situation take from me - the song became as much about a fight with myself as it is about a fight with someone else. in that moment i was certain that my relationships with my family member & myself would forever be deeply altered. but nothing actually changed - my wounds were just paper cuts. i wrote the lyric “you don’t hurt like you think you do, like a bug but i just scratch right through” - and the rest of the song fell into place. i realized i wasn’t writing about being angry or disappointed - i was writing about the power and amusement of realizing your own strength. i produced the bones of the song as i wrote it. as the emotion of the song changed, i tried to make the song’s darker, grittier elements to work in a light, playful way - the muted guitars and distorted bass line still drive the song, but the chord changes feel less serious. i sent the entire project over to my friend struan finlay in new zealand to fill out the rest of the production. collectors will get access to a collectors-only telegram chat. the golden egg winner will also receive a one off piece of “i could do this all night” merch. written by ben kessler produced by ben kessler & struan finlay __ You said some things you never meant that you thought you did For a second I was tongue-tied, twisted like a kid And I warned ya, you spend too much time in your head You're a ticking bomb and I'm an easy hit But you don't hurt like you think you do Like a bug bite I just scratch right through Try to chase me down 4th avenue You know I'll always run back to you Yeah I could do this all night You throw a mean punch but I know you can't fight And I gave up trying to Give a piece of my mind I'll let you be right Run all the circles you like I could do this all night Took a shot, took my shoes off, said I'm feeling tough But the truth is I'd feel anything that you want And I hope these nights don't take the ones I loved Oh give me your worst, make it all hurt, let me know when you've had enough Yeah I could do this all night You throw a mean punch but I know you can't fight And I gave up trying to Give a piece of my mind I'll let you be right Run all the circles you like I could do this all night I love it when you talk me down Throw your best shot now If it makes you feel better somehow Knock my teeth right out Yeah I could do this all night You throw a mean punch but I know you can't fight And I gave up trying to Give a piece of my mind I'll let you be right Run all the circles you like I could do this all night Yeah I could do this all night You throw a mean punch but I know you can't fight And I gave up trying to Give a piece of my mind I'll let you be right Run all the circles you like I could do this all night I love it when you talk me down Throw your best shot now
