While driving home to Harrogate from Edinburgh, Leon Marshall wrote this song. A professional singer already, Leon has been on the BBC and recently reached the semi-finals of a national singing competition. Perhaps more used to singing songs written by someone else, it takes a lot of guts to push out the boat and stand on your own deck.
With a bendy guitar melody, summertime rain lashes down in the form of static. A happy and light touch drum-beat matches the strumming pattern. Leon sings, his melody has a bouncy and uplifting vibe which evolves across the moving composition. The song speaks of chain-smoking, the portioned moments where we sort out our mind and assess the previous moments. Sometimes those moments stretch back for years and years. Where our mind knows we are missing a point or forgetting who we really are.
