Back then, I used to look back and say "I've been listening to Jason Molina for years." When he came to San Francisco somewhere in the early
2000's, I burned bridges to stand on his. The only thing holding me up needed support too.

A friend of mine spotted Jason first. My legs shaked in his direction.

"You're Jason Molina, right?"

"Yeah."

"Look man, I just want to tell you how much your music means to me. Your albums are literally the only thing I've been listening to...for like five years. Actually just the other day I was thinking 'I gotta listen to something else...'"

I hated myself for falling into those words. I'd always let Jason say the things I couldn't.

I looked shamefully off to the side. His eyes fixed on me like lightning.

Our soul conduit.

With a flash, his arms crashed around me.

And he held on tight.

Ten years later, what he said next is crippling me now.

"I love you brother."

"I love you too, man."

...

I learned how to keep a lamp trimmed. But the North Star shone too bright. Reflecting only the light of him, our everlasting night.

Born out of Nick Drake's updated ruin. Jason's leaving in a much outdated style.

"No one knows you but the rain in the air. Don't you worry, they'll stand and stare."

With a glittering flash in my eye, anyone can see i'm not alright. My soul truth has gone away. Who will help me try and stay?

Ride with the ghost, but make room for two. Underneath your star, never a moon so blue.

Jason wrote the saddest music that ever made me happy. It got me through some dark days in my life. Thank you for that.
