Summer Again

Album: Never Going Back to OK (2008)


  • Frontman Josh Havens explained to Christian Music Today that the album's underlying theme of transformation was not planned: "We didn't intend for it to be a theme, but after finishing the record, we could see the idea of transformation throughout the entire album. Several songs could be about not being content on where we are and striving for more, or taking the bad that comes in life and letting it be used for good - that God is ultimately in control and he can take the chaos and make it beautiful. 'Summer Again' is a good example, dealing with several different issues of loss and changing seasons. It could stand for your life as you look back and long for the glory of your youth, or it could be about coming to terms with where you are."
