That Summer, at Home I Had Become the Invisible Boy

Album: Fourteen Autumns & Fifteen Winters (2007)
  • This was the first single released by Twilight Sad and the first song ever written by the band's vocalist James Graham. He recalled to Drowned in Sound: "I remember Andy MacFarlane (guitar) sent me the music and saying 'get off yer arse and write something, I know you can.' Up until that point I didn't know what to write about, then some pretty bad things happened to me, and people close to me, around the time Andy sent over the music for this song, so I got off my arse and wrote this. I don't think we've never not played this song at a gig since it was written."
  • The title is a reference to one of Graham's favorite films, Stand by Me.
