My song "Eager Pilot" was written, as most of my songs tend to be, when I was pining over a boy. A best friend of mine at the time, with whom I wrote music with and spent a lot of time with. Even though some part of me knew that he didn't feel the same way, I went for it because my heart is a fearless soldier, and I just had to know if his heart was pining for me back.

This song is about being fearless but totally terrified of following your heart. Of being frustrated at the cowardice of others. Of the object of your affection pullin' on your heart strings but not actually going after you. The pain of being vulnerable. All of those things.
