Peaceful Harbor

Album: Second Nature (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Guitarist Steve Morse came up with the chord progression the night that he found out his next door neighbor's son had died in an accident. He recalled in a Reddit AMA: "He was the same age as my son, Kevin, and they were friends. It was a sad song that came out, but had no lyrics, we all added to it, and the lyrics now are perfect for everything I was feeling."
