From the Artist: "I'm so proud of this song and excited that it's finally out in the world. I think the music video is my favorite yet, because Randy Shaffer absolutely nailed my vision. There's a sort of beautiful sadness in the memories of a past love, and if we're not careful, they can captivate and haunt us for a long time.
