Likely the most autobiographical of all the songs on Safe In Sound, “Saint Mary” tells the story of a cycling accident in Chicago that nearly cost Nick his life.


All my life
Had my head in my helmet
Right of the road
On the side
Sunlight on the road
Wind in my face
I went high over and under
Woke somewhere else
Woman of grace
Angel of slumber

Lost in space
Nothing but wonder
Empty in I

It took time
To recoup what was taken
Self in remaking
Rethink this life
In my head oh
In our only life cycle
In the blink of an eye I was left
The whole world was ending
But also rebirth
And also pretending
Knowing what life is worth
