In Their Words: “This song was inspired by watching my friend Kyle Field (Little Wings) perform an afternoon set at The Hipnic (The Mother Hips and FolkYeah Presents annual festival in Big Sur, California). I was lying on the grass with my family and some friends, staring up at the trees and listening to Kyle’s voice lilt through the leaves. There was no other place to be.
“The song flows in three parts just like a car trip might. The first touches on the excitement of making the journey to your favorite place. The second is being in that place and taking it all in. The third is that drive home which is filled with a tired, beautiful sadness — recalling the fun times you had and wishing they weren’t over while falling asleep off into a dream.” — Greg Loiacono
