In Their Words: “I wrote this song late one evening while dealing with some leftover emotions from a unexpected breakup. Just when you think you are over someone, it can take only the slightest reminder to flood you with loneliness and take you back to what once was. To capture the mixed emotions of healing, I played with the concept of having long notes that soar above a quick, nervous tempo, giving an unsettling feeling of longing. We are so grateful to have guest artist George Guthrie’s driving banjo on this track.” — Natalie Padilla
