Where We're Going

Album: The Bonny (2020)
Charted: 39

Songfacts®:

  • Gerry Cinnamon wrote this anthemic track a few years before the release of The Bonny during a dark time in his life. At the time, he could see no way out, but on "Where We're Going," he includes a gentle reminder to hold on to your dream. If you continue to work hard, better times are inevitable.

    "If I write songs about the bad stuff I think it's only polite to remind people of the real reality," Cinnamon explained to NME. "That it doesn't matter where you're at, it's where you're going that counts."
