Session 2A | Nov 15, 2016
On this song, Ben Howard describes the memories he had when he was young and free. He reminds this moments with melancholy, since almost on every verse he makes a reference on how happy he was.
The introduction is the most descriptive part. We can see that is summer, and that he and his friends were on a sunny beach far from home where they were camping. On the chorus, he makes a reference on how happy he was at that moment with his friends, enjoying every second without a care in the world. On the last part of the song he leads me to understand that on that part of his life he grew a lot as a person, learning different thing everyday, just being happy.
Steady as the stars in the woods
And the warmth rang true inside these bones
As the old pine fell we sang
Just to bless the morning.
