In Their Words: There’s a tender sadness that comes along with existential questions; maybe it’s because we’ll never have the answers that we seek. This song is an exploration of those feelings through a retrospective narrative, looking back at a younger version of myself. There’s truth in the song — in that my parents were amazingly supportive and encouraged my curiosity, while also pushing me to enjoy the simplicity of youth. But it also embellishes life’s most difficult moments — to make plain the difficulty of grappling with life, death, and meaning at a young age. My intention in performing and releasing this song is to connect listeners to their own experiences of these deep questions and to remind them of their own innocence at one time or another.” — Kyle Donovan
