In Their Words: “I wrote this song about spending summer holidays with my grandparents in Ballantrae. It’s a small town in the southwestern armpit of Scotland with one pub, a gas station and little else. Their house was full of cigarette smoke, the TV was always on and the fridge was always full of soda. Us kids would jump the wall into the junkyard next door and break old car windows with slingshots or kick a football against the garage door. I’ve been harboring a lot of guilt about leaving my family in the UK. It’s been almost 6 years since I moved to the US and a lot has changed. Writing this song was an attempt to reconnect with some of the better memories of my childhood.” – Lorkin O’Reilly
