However, it weighs on my family and friends. I'm asking for 'one more year'. I left home at 21 to go play my guitar. It's lonely, but it's because I yearn to wander. I'm aware of how lucky I am.”

So, we need to appreciate the differences. If we do, maybe we can live better with one another.” The single hinges on a buoyant riff and hummable groove and charges towards a ghostly refrain awash in reverb as Green pleads, “Don't wake me when this is over, just let me drift amidst my dreams.”
