“This song was written in my old loft on Stockholm St in Brooklyn the morning after my girlfriend broke the news to me that she would be moving back home to take care of her mom. It was the weekend of my birthday, and I had completely lost my voice, but was able to just get the lyrics down. It was the middle of Summer and it was hot as all Hell. New York was pretty unbearable during that heatwave. At that moment, I understood why all the cards were being dealt the way they were, but it felt like more plea would maybe still change her mind” – Sean Walsh (Vocals, Guitar)
