“It took me years to understand what it felt like to truly love somebody. For a long time, I didn’t even understand what true love was. Isn’t it funny how when you meet a person your whole world can change in one simple moment?” shared Noah Smith. “Now that I know what that feeling is, I pray that I never forget it. The day we wrote Way Back I knew that it was a song that could remind generations of people what true love is.”
“I invited Noah down to play a Nashville Nights show at the listening room in Nashville… We sold it out that night, and half the crowd was there to see Noah… I knew there was something special happening with the song Way Back, as soon as the chorus kicked in I was watching the crowd, and every single person in the room was singing. When you can move that many people to lift their voices together, you’ve got lightning in a bottle, that’s Way Back.” added hit songwriter Blue Foley.
“…There’s been girls like you since the garden
Keeping boys like me in your pocket
We were like Johnny and June and that warm July
You were my Sandy on those summer nights
It’s a tale as old as time
Baby you and I
Go way back
We go way way back
We go way back
We’ve built a life and love just like that
From way back
Love like ours lasts through the ages
Long long after all the photographs have faded
You and I were like Bonnie and Clyde headlines change and time goes by
But this love will never die…”
“‘Way Back’ is grounded in the truth that the best love stories take time,” states Noah Smith. “Everyone’s story is different, but I know this song will inspire my fans to embrace the chase, live for the magic, dance in the kitchen, and sing together like nobody is listening!”
Way Back was recorded at Saxman Studios in Nashville TN with Grady Saxman on drums and Sol Philcox-Littlefield adding electric guitar. The tune was produced by Noah Smith and mixed and mastered by Chris Harding and Harding Audio.
