Idaho - Alas

I am not sure how Jeff Martin must feel by now. He and his band keep on making records that are so beautiful and I'm sure they know this themselves, but nobody ever seems to notice. I hope they continue and don't feel rejected, because the world would be so empty without Idaho. It's been years since I've been captured by their music and ever since I have had trouble describing what Idaho is about. The feelings they conjure up are so abstract I am lost for words to describe them. To me Idaho is about longing, loneliness, love, frustration, fear, anger and happiness, especially happiness.

I don't know, I guess Idaho is about life. My life.
