Young Love

Album: The Color Before the Sun (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • After a year of living in Brooklyn, Coheed frontman Claudio Sanchez and his wife made the decision to move back to their country house in upstate New York after the birth of their son. However, it turned out that the people they'd been renting their property to, had turned it into a cannabis farm. Sanchez explained to TeamRock: "The house we were preparing to move back into with our son had now been destroyed, and we had to pick up the pieces and put the house back together. I wrote this song as sort of an apology to the house, because it was such an important place for me and I left it in the wrong hands."

    "That's kind of why I approached the music in that sort of washy way. It feels very lonesome, and that's because we left our house alone with the wrong people. Everything got handled eventually, and we moved back in there for a year or so."
