Noah Kahan.

The singer song writer, hailing from Vermont, is a treasure.

His music feels lived in.

Like an old home.

Like a pair of tattered jeans.

Like a book with its pages stained by coffee.

His music is lived in, and loved.

Now a follower of this man.

NORTHERN ATTITUDE is spectacular. Here’s the lyrics:

Breathing in
Breathing out
How you been?
Settled down?

You feeling right?
You feeling proud?
How’re your kids?
Where are they now?

You build a boat
You build a life
You lose your friends
You lose your wife

You settle in
To routine
Where are you?
What does it mean?

If I get too close
And I’m not how you hoped
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised out in the cold

If the sun don’t rise
‘Til the summertime
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised on little light

You bought some shit
You search online
You’re getting lost
You’re getting high

All alone
Late in life
Scared to live
Scared to die

You build a boat
You build a life
You lose your kids
You lose your wife

You settle down
You’re feeling lost
Getting stoned
Then kicking rocks
(Three, four)

If I get too close
And I’m not how you hoped
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised out in the cold

If the sun don’t rise
‘Til the summertime
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised on little light

Oh, oh, oh, oh 

If you get too close
And I’m not how you hoped
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised out in the cold

If the sun don’t shine
‘Til the summertime
Forgive my northern attitude
Oh, I was raised on little light
