The song is a Caribbean inspired steel drum song which envisions a punk rock musician retiring to Bermuda to find love and live a peaceful life. It’s dedicated to Cork Musician Johnny Coughlan (aka jones Ramone) who passed unexpectedly in June 2020. The song was recorded using steel drums, Lap steel guitar, acoustic bass and acoustic drum. The chorus describes search for a new life and love to be spend by the ocean for eternity. “I’m going to fly where love comes easy, embrace the golden wind, I’m going to fly where love comes easy, and to your arms again I will dwell.”
The spirit of pure energy and a love of life is present in this song.
