      “I love music videosthat have the ability to tell the story beyond the lyrics of a song,” Alecshared. “When I wrote The Way You Felt, I foundmyself thinking about an ex-girlfriend, so when it came time to shoot thevideo, I felt inspired to go back to all of the places where our relationshipunfolded. I thought it was the perfect way to process some good and badmemories, and maybe get a little closure, which I obviously needed because I’mstill writing about it.”
