"Kenai" as written by Steven Holt, Brock Lindow, Thomas Noonan and Mick Whitney....
Over mountains I feel safe
Sacred were those summers
And these memories I place in my heart for shelter
And I modify, just to smell the ocean
And I underline, visualizing motion

And I guess I miss my home
I could not stay
I'll return, it's alright, I'm okay

Reoccurred daydream, tie up stern first
And these gifts I've learned, never leave me
And I redesign, family and growing
And I realign, forgetting nothing

Maybe in a few years it'll come back to you
Reflection becoming your virtue
So sort me out, lay me away
Over these mountains I feel safe
And bless the sound, return the day
Over these mountains I feel safe

    General CommentThis song is about how they moved from Alaska to Portland in order to get discovered. Kenai is the name of the town in Alaska where their guitarist grew up.

    General CommentThis song has a special meaning for me as I moved to Alaska when I was young and lived there for eleven years before moving away. After I had moved and heard this song a year or so later, it brought me close to tears because it perfectly reflected my own feelings about the move and how much I miss Alaska, which has grown to be home for me. Even now, a couple years after the move, I still listen to this song and feel homesick.
    The line "over mountains I feel safe" especially reflects my feelings as after living with mountains looming overhead for so long, now that I live in a place where the land is almost completely flat as far as the eye can see, I feel somewhat like the opposite of claustrophobic.
