This song is in the handful of very first songs I wrote, possibly the second or third song I ever wrote on guitar back in the early 2000s. I'm performing it live here at the Mocha Room in Elkhart, IN. I was just getting ready to leave behind four years of college, friends, relationships and a band partnership to strike on my own, solo and head home for Colorado. Now it's been over ten years of playing and writing songs. I've actually never made it back to IN. Perhaps I will at least for a college homecoming one of these years. Hasn't there ever been anything you were leaving but were in denial about? We always think it's not the end, but often chapters close and never reopen - this has been one of those chapters for me.
