In the words of MØNTE:  ""Sam's Song," at its core is a love song. It's about my loving partner, best friend, and boyfriend, Sam, and all the strange synchronicities in our lives. It's about finding somebody who fits into your life and someone you can grow with. That's what I think is beautiful about love, is that it grows. It's a scary, rare, and an indescribable feeling at 23 to find somebody who wants to grow with you, but I tried to put that feeling into words. I hope you love this song the way I love Sam."
