The saddest kind of nostalgia is that deep-breathing, temple-aching feeling that you have lost something, and not only have you lost it, you don't even know what it was that you have misplaced. Or maybe it was taken from you? Or maybe it was never there to begin with but that one side-effect of adulthood is this aching reminiscence. It is something that you can't even remember remembering no matter how hard you try.
For some it could be the creative wonder of looking into the woods and seeing the perfect place to put your fort to fight off pirates and wizards.
For others it could be the song that lost its bite. The one you used to scream while you drove around town with your friends when you were eighteen years old, but now you can't even bear to listen to it because of that feeling it gives you deep in your chest, behind your heart.
Or perhaps for you it isn't even a feeling of loss, but that something has been broken and needs to be fixed.
Here are three simple songs. Each one features a combination of just a few chords on a guitar or ukulele. But for us, when we strum the strings and sing the melodies, we don't feel like we are missing anything. They are our simple truths.
Thank you for letting us share them with you,
Heather, Dane, and Tyler
