In Their Words: “The original thought was to layer the sounds like a landscape — the bass, the water; the drums, the trees; the acoustic guitar, the sky; and the singing and pedal steel like the birds. This song in the studio happened very organically; I wanted to capture the feeling of a group of musicians playing like it was 3 am at someone’s cottage after everyone else has gone to bed. Jadea Kelly did a great job with the backing vocals on this one.

In retrospect, a lot of the songs on the album are reflections on growing up in Ontario. This is one of those songs. It comes from me thinking about the friends I grew up with — how you can all come from the same place, share so many of the same experiences but, in the end, choose to take such different paths.” — Lee Watson
