So dive into it and enjoy the magic of “Wonder Years”.
“Wonder Years is one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written. Quite simply, it’s a story about passion between two people and their ignorance to the true love that they’re experiencing. The inspiration for this song came from a lot of relationships, summer flings, etc. that I experienced. I tend to romanticize nostalgia, so this record is my reflecting on some of those times and wondering if what I experienced was deeper than I realized at the time. I’m asking all the people I’ve ever had anything with, “Do You Wonder?” because if we’re both wondering, maybe we missed out on something extraordinary. The song is certainly directed towards my first love, but the stories came from all different places. The “Wonder Years” are just those special times with special people, that no one likes to talk about, but can’t forget.” – Patrick Martin
