Songfacts®:

  • Steve Hindalong plays drums in The Choir and writes their lyrics. Explaining this song, he told us: "My wife, Nancy, is a lover of nature. She grew up in Boise, Idaho and her heart is still in the northwest. She can identify most trees by their bark, seed and leaf. Through her eyes I have learned to appreciate the structure and beauty of bare trees. And it brings to mind the importance of transparency in a relationship. We've shared many difficult seasons over 28 years. There have been times when it seemed we wouldn't make it. But our love is richer for having endured the winters. Yes, and then comes spring - the greening!"
