Mellifluous and Inspirational

Why is it that when I listen to Adam Young's songs, I always end up swooning  (I know right? Actual swoon-age!) and marveling at how well and poetic he writes? He is honestly the best songwriter I've ever heard of. His songs always make me want to sing, paint, draw, write--basically do anything creative. He has such a playful way with words.
