"I watched the ceiling fan go round and round again / I can't believe you went but you're gone." 

For the latest episode of our Inside the Verse video series, Toronto singer-songwriter Ben Stevenson takes us inside "Summer Dealer," a hypnotic track he wrote with Melanie Smith about a lost love. From the origins of the song's heartbroken nostalgia to where the closing line, "I don't even know you," came from, this is a fascinating look on how real life experience and artistic expression can intertwine to create a song.
