In the summer of 1999, a father — longing for what he left behind — returns with his family to his hometown of Inverness after moving to San Francisco for work. There he re-experiences the charms of his small, close-knit community. In a short period of time, he relives what he’d been missing for the entire time he was away. He knows that he only has a week to make up for the other 51 he’s away for, so he tries his hardest to live in the moment and let all he’s longed for soak in.

Lyrics

JULY

Another Winter by the skin of my teeth
Holding on with the memories I keep

When I get there I promise I’ll try
To do my best not to watch it go by

PRE
Hold me, hold my beating heart while I’m coming alive
Hold me, hold my every breath for a week in July

Chorus
Live a little harder, take in everything that you can
Feel a little deeper, everything will go as you planned

I heard mention that AJ is back
Built his new costume out of latex and tacks

Soaking my bones in the ocean today
Fix me up for 51 weeks away

PRE
Hold me, hold my beating heart while I’m coming alive
Hold me, hold my every breath for a week in July

Chorus
Live a little harder, take in everything that you can
Feel a little deeper, everything will go as you planned

I don’t need a reason, just give me the season and I’ll be there to feel it, live it and believe it

Look into the sky, it’s glowing and alive and everything you missed is right now at your side
