In Their Words: “Three years ago, I got together with my friend Will Logsdon to write a song. I had a riff, and he had a beautiful melody line for a chorus. We tinkered with some lyrics — ‘I see your smile skipping across the water. I feel like a man with a bridge on fire’ — and a few throw away lines, but the song didn’t seem to have much direction. We filed it.

After Kim passed away, I revisited what Will and I had started. The lyrics pretty much wrote themselves, at that point … It’s a difficult song for me to listen to, but I’m very pleased with how it turned out.” — Lynn Taylor
