This is a love song, but with with monsters. The world looks different, darker even after you have your first child. This song is a conversation between a mother and father in the form of an epic as they make plans to face a world where the push and pull of fight or flight is a part of a journey toward the hope of stability and home.
I wrote this song after a friend of mine first introduced me to the idea of there being a "Wildfire Season" in the western US. A time when people readied themselves and planned in case they needed to evacuate, not certain if they would lose everything. I hope you can see yourself in here somewhere. The song is optimistic but avoids drawing any final conclusions.
