In Their Words: “Wrote this one with my pal Khalid Yassein (Wild Rivers) at a summer BBQ and my pal Michael Trent (Shovels & Rope) helped bring it to life via the power of the internet. At the time I wrote this song, I was stuck at home and all I seemed to write about was missing tour and at the same time missing home haha. Seems like there’s always a battle of wanting to have the stability of finding a partner, a home and settling down, and the pull of being out on the open road. I’m hoping I can find a balance in both one day. I guess this song leans more on the ‘yearning for a love and home’ type of song. I feel pretty grateful right now to have both those things but for some reason I have a feeling I’ll still be writing songs about missing something in years to come. Hopefully it’s just about missing my keys or misplacing my wallet haha! This song actually ended up being my favourite of the bunch of songs on my new EP, Past Dawn, in many ways. I especially loved making the video in one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. That deserted space between Nevada and California really helped capture that feeling of being free and wild roaming the highways of America!” — Jeremie Albino
