First, It starts with the writing. With better angels, I found it took less time to write the lyrics. When I noticed that, I was concerned that I was not giving them the attention that I had given previous material. Now however, I see they actually have as much or more meaning.
Also, In the past, sometimes I would write and purposely change words so that I would leave the meaning more open to interpretation by the listener. I thought this was better than focusing on a particular meaning…maybe it is. Now however, I do not intentionally do that and yet, I find the words to be working on several levels without purposeful intent on my part…I must be improving.
