“I wrote this about the senses and how they get triggered when you leave someone or experience a tough loss. So, each section contains something about sight, taste, touch, sound. Everything you feel during loss and how it can trigger emotions or even physical feelings. The smell of someone cologne/perfume making the hair on your neck stand up. Or a rush of a memory coming back because you smelled something that is attached to a memory of them. The sound of a song you listened to on a drive with them in the car and the rush of emotions that envelope you. Hearing someone’s name that is the same name as your ex or the person you lost, and how it makes all your feelings come rushing back. All our senses have memories attached to them, which is why I wrote this song” — Courtney Paige Nelson.
