Album: Before We Forgot How To Dream (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Bridie Monds-Watsons (Aka SOAK) sings both here and on "Oh Brother" of her older sibling's personal crisis. "He smoked a s--t-ton of grass while he was doing his A-levels and dropped out and did jobs, and left jobs," explained Monds-Watsons to The Guardian. "Now he's home, he's got a job and he's doing really good, but those songs were observations of what he was doing at the time and also my worries."
