Irish folk music singer-songwriter James Vincent McMorrow opens his debut album Early In The Morning with this swirling track. "I always knew when I wrote this song that it would open the album," he said. "The lyric is very much about transition, about change. That is definitely the underlying theme that ties it all together. The last 2 years that preceded this record being made involved some of the greatest change I'd ever experienced, physical, emotional, and spiritual. When I write lyrics they come together in a pretty uncoordinated way, lines get written, slowly link up until a story reveals itself. It was only when I was finished that I looked back and saw the words for what they were, realized what they meant."
