Finest Hour

Album: Make A Move (2013)
  • This song finds Gavin DeGraw bemoaning the ever shrinking safe space for people to escape social media. "I think society doesn't allow us to just let go anymore," DeGraw explained. "Everyone's taking pictures of everybody at all times and recording what they say, even when they're just blathering on with buddies and having a great time. Then you walk into work the next day and everyone's talking about it."
