With a mid-tempo acoustic fingerpicking pattern and some gorgeous harmonies, Corey Kilgannon immediately strikes a poised simplicity reminiscent of the late George Harrison. The lyrics are no disappointment:
“I feel it in the places and the people that I meet
a thousand ways to say hello and only one true way to leave
they hustle in their cities, saving up to purchase peace
in all my wandering you can only learn to be here now”— Corey Kilgannon
It's a warm, endearing lead vocal, with a tender duet harmony lying just beneath the surface. The lyrical theme feels like a long minute with your better self, taking notes about what really matters. The message seems to resonate simply as: be here now.
That's great advice.
Corey Kilgannon is a singer-songwriter from Jacksonville Beach, United States. This song is featured on our Rainy Day playlist.
