At the begging of Lockdown, my housemate and good friend for 8 years lost his life to Covid19. This had impacted my productivity for obvious reasons. I didn't pick up the guitar for a long time, but when I did this song happened. I owe this song in part to Glen Hansard - I watched his livestream conversations/performances and there was a part when someone asked about writing block and Glen's response was something along the lines of "There is no such thing. All you have to do is write down a truth at that very moment."
This resonated when I picked up the guitar for the first time since Josh's death, and the following song just fell out of me. Josh's parents asked that people donated to the mental health charity MIND in leu of flowers. So I decided to record the song and pledge that every purchase would go straight to MIND.
