I’m quite proud of this song lyrically. It’s about finding it really difficult to give up on somebody but realising that it’s futile to keep fighting.

I wrote this song when I was sixteen. I look at it quite fondly still even though it’s nearly three years old now.
English singer/songwriter Ralegh Long will be releasing an EP called We Are in the Fields August 12, 2016. He describes the creation of this EP as follows:“I recorded the basic tracks for this in a day and then did some overdubs. I wanted to make a record like those I turn to for comfort. I was thinking about the Innocence Mission or Whiskeytown’s Pneumonia. Woody guitars, soft percussion – somewhere to hide. Songs that sound good at home. A little E.P, really. ” Featured below is his single “Morning”.
