"It's a song about greener grass. I wrote it during a period of time where I hated where I lived and who I was there, and I just felt so helpless that like I figured whenever I did inevitably wither away the parties that be could ship me somewhere better. Reflecting on it, the hopelessness I felt was actually in me, and the place I was in or where I wanted to be couldn't help things if I wasn't willing to help myself first." - Ben Hopkins, PWR BTTM

"New Hampshire was a song that I was immediately smitten with when Ben sent me the demo in Winter 2014. Something wasn't right when we recorded it in the original Ugly Cherries session, and much to my dismay we eventually scrapped it. I'm so glad it worked out this time around and other people get to hear it." - Liv Bruce, PWR BTTM

lyrics

When I die
Please bury me in New Hampshire
I really like the leaves
Don't be sad
I've done my share of living
I think I have to leave

Someday all the birds up in the sky
Will just die
Oh well
And the sun
It will burn out
Oh well
You and I will die
Oh wellx5

In the summer
Just dig me up and
Put me on the high line
I really like the breeze
After that
Just put me on a bus back to New Hampshire
I think I had to leave

Someday all the birds up in the sky
Will just die
Oh well
And the sun
It will burn out
Oh well
You and I will die
Oh wellx5

Someday all the birds up in the sky
Will just die
Oh well
And the sun
It will burn out
Oh well
You and I will die
Oh wellx5
(Round)
