For Annabelle

Album: Infinite Arms (2010)
  • Vocalist Ben Bridwell told The Skinny: "This is a homage to my daughter, as at the time of writing my wife was pregnant with our first child and I guess impending fatherhood was probably the main influence or inspiration for the song. Also, Tyler (Ramsay, guitarist) wrote the intro in five seconds."
