“I remember my Uncle John abruptly asking me one day, if I’d had my heart broken yet.
I’ll never forget when I said yes he just looked at me very sternly and said, “Good”.
I wrote this song to try and capture all the emotions of that first heartbreak and used Spades as a metaphor because I’d just learned to play around the time.
One of the first things you learn in Spades is to never Renege. It fascinated me how emotional ppl would get that when it would happen.
When I looked up the definition, one of the ones I found seemed perfect for a song.
Renege: To go back on one’s word.”
