“There’s definitely a sense of nostalgia about the whole song. I wrote it at a time when I looked to those good times to see me through. Music can totally transcend time and space and carry your mind to all sorts of places, even when you’re not exactly where you want to be. That’s what this song is for me. It takes me back, it takes me forward, it takes me through.” – Samuel Jack explained
