“dashboard (loved by you)” is a special sort of love song. Guitar collides like constellations in the night sky against nobody likes you pat’s delicate vocal tone, slender and somehow immense. “I used to want it all, to fill my empty soul,” he sings, “but now my only hope is to be loved by you.” He goes on to wonder if he’s enough – if his imperfect love is enough to tide his lover over. As his voice shoots across the atmosphere, as though a falling star looking for cold earth, his heart swells with the knowledge that it’ll all work out like it’s supposed to. It might take some time, and it might be terribly messy, but the stars will align. They always do.
