I wrote this song a few summers ago when I was back in Ireland visiting. We had just moved out of the childhood house and were staying with my Auntie and Uncle for the week.

I didn’t have any of my recording gear with me but I found an old acoustic guitar from the attic and a beaten up mic from when I was younger. I wrote the track with the idea of it being an interlude in mind. I think originally it was going to be on the first EP in 2018 but for some reason never made it passed the demo stage. I decided not to re record it and keep it the
way it was when I first did it on the old busted up 5 string acoustic.


Stay by the fire
Won’t be a while
Oh I know
Time moves slow
Afraid of the light
Built by design
To lose control
Oh I know
And sometimes I feel I’m hanging on
And all the times we had
Now you’re gone
