I wrote this song in my dorm room at Appalachian as I was watching the leaves turn and start to fall. Even though I recorded this version 18 years later, it still brings back the feeling of watching the shadows roll across the dorm room while I played guitar and contemplated life as only a teenager could.
The summer’s not even totally over yet and I’m already writing ‘Fall songs’. I must admit that back in the day, fall was my favorite subject. I lived in Boone and was constantly surrounded by those lovely Carolina autumn leaves. However, I’m probably writing cool weather songs now because I’m ready for this scorching summer to get over with. I guess I’ve already adopted my cool air attitude.
