In Their Words: “I wrote this song with John Leventhal. He had most of the piano melody written and recorded, and within moments of him playing it for me I had this very clear vision of the cypress trees in my hometown of Wimberley, Texas. I rode the subway home from John’s studio that evening with the melody in my inbox and the lyrics just poured out of me. We tweaked the form and a couple of lines the next day. This is one of those songs that feels like it was always a part of me but was waiting for the right time to emerge.” — Sarah Jarosz
