Cooper Greenberg gives us a taste of that live folk feel with his acoustic guitar and a dynamic performance. We move from the fingerpicked 8th-note triplets, to a brazen strum, and back again, taking note of the impassioned lead vocal.

The message here is one of open communication; beside the beautiful flourishes, we have a personal statement about feeling disconnected from the outside world.

“When I close my eyes
and the light is low
I can slip away
into the dream I know”— Cooper Greenberg

From the lyrics, we get that universal feeling of just wanting to hide from everything. Perhaps the heart of maturity is the commitment to self-care in the face of adversity.

Cooper Greenberg is a folk singer and songwriter from San Antonio. This song is featured on our Country playlist.
