  • Lyrics
  • Frontman Charlie Fink harks back on this autobiographical song to the innocence, simplicity and camaraderie of N&TH's early days playing in west London folk-den Bosun's locker bar. He used to play there alongside his former girlfriend, songstress Laura Marling, and his old schoolmate, Mumford & Sons banjo player Winston Marshall. "I'll give it all back just to do it again," he sings. "Turn back time, be with my friends."
  • The song's music video was directed by Fink and stars children playing younger versions of the Noah & the Whale band members. Fink told NME: "The song is the story of a young band's first performance, and so the video is a similar thing."
