Songfacts®:

  • This is a track from My Morning Jacket's The Waterfall album. Frontman Jim James explained the reason why he titled this song after the season of rebirth to Uncut: "Because this album took a year to make, I see a lot of seasons in this record," he said. "There is a song called Spring, which doesn't take a lot to work out. I see waterfalls and I see leaves blowing and I see plants dying. I see those kinds of images throughout this record."
