In Their Words: “This was the last song I recorded for the album. I wasn’t sure if I was going to put this one on the record until the last moment, but I’m really glad I did. The track is made with only vocals and guitar, and it felt really complete to me. I think the lyrics are pretty straightforward; they’re a kind of journal entry mixed with sentiment I think many of us feel as we age. The longer we live, the more challenges, difficulties, and growth opportunities we face. We learn all these amazing life lessons and have to rise above the accompanying challenges. Sometimes through our experience or culture, we’re taught to fear aging and what it might mean for our bodies and minds. But the song is an expression of being resilient because of what we’ve been through, and despite whatever is ahead. It’s about making it through tough times at every age and stage we are in. It’s a dedication for all of those willing to invest in a good today, even if our bones ache in the morning.” — Melody Duncan
