In Their Words: “‘How Many Birds’ is a lonely ballad of singlehood by a 20-something woman. I was inspired by the sight of birds returning home to the trees of Southwest Virginia in springtime and wondered if any birds make that journey alone. ‘How Many Birds’ explores my craving for direction and control in my romantic life and wonderment at the heartache of being single when so many people around you are in love. When I play this song live, I usually say, ‘This song is about being single for an eternity lol.'” — Erin Lunsford
