ABOUT THE PROGRAM
TRANSCRIPT

- So, part of the reason that we decided on the name

In The Valley for our band is because we believe

that the hard things in life, the sad parts of life,

and the hardest things that you go through

often are the most important.

They help you grow,

they help you become the person that you are.

And this next song that we're gonna sing

is called "Closed Eyes."

It was written to kind of deal with

and talk about death

and dealing with trauma.

And yeah, our production on this is really fun.

If you want to go out and listen to it,

we're gonna do a little bit of a different version today

and kind of strip it back, but we hope you enjoy.
