“Stick Season” is a track by Noah Kahan, an American singer-songwriter, launched as the primary single from his album Stick Season on July 8, 2022. Kahan penned the song independently and collaborated on its production with Gabe Simon. While initially receiving moderate attention in the US, the track gained viral traction on TikTok in mid-2023, subsequently making waves globally. It peaked at number one in the United Kingdom, Australia, Ireland, the Netherlands, and the Flanders region of Belgium, while also securing spots in the top 10 charts in Canada, New Zealand, and the United States.

The theme of the song revolves around heartbreak, loss, and the struggle to move on from a past relationship. The lyrics paint a picture of a person who feels abandoned and stuck in their emotions, unable to fully cope with the pain of separation. 

The song begins with the protagonist reflecting on broken promises and feeling betrayed as their partner seemingly changed their mind about the relationship. Throughout the song, there’s a sense of longing and nostalgia for the past, represented by memories and dreams of the person they once loved. 

The mention of Vermont and the “season of the sticks” suggests a desolate and isolating environment, mirroring the emotional landscape of the protagonist. Additionally, the reference to COVID-19 and travel restrictions adds a contemporary context, highlighting the challenges of finding solace or distraction from heartache.

The theme of self-blame and playing the victim is also prominent, as the protagonist grapples with feelings of guilt and inadequacy. Despite attempting to drown their sorrows in alcohol and distraction, they remain haunted by thoughts of their lost love.

Overall, “Stick Season” delves into the complex emotions of grief, longing, and self-reflection that accompany the end of a relationship, capturing the rawness and vulnerability of heartbreak.

Stick Season Lyrics by Noah Kahan

As you promised me that I was more than all the miles combined

You must have had yourself a change of heart, like halfway through the drive

Because your voice trailed off exactly as you passed my exit sign

Kept on driving straight and left our future to the right

Now I am stuck between my anger and the blame that I can’t face

Memories are somethin’ even smoking weed does not replace

And I am terrified of weather ’cause I see you when it rains

Doc told me to travel, but there’s COVID on the planes

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks

And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed

And it’s half my fault but I just like to play the victim

I’ll drink alcohol ’til my friends come home for Christmas

And I’ll dream each night of some version of you

That I might not have but I did not lose

Now you’re tire tracks and one pair of shoes

And I’m split in half, but that’ll have to do

So I thought that if I piled something good on all my bad

That I could cancel out the darkness I inherited from dad

No, I am no longer funny ’cause I miss the way you laugh

You once called me forever, now you still can’t call me back

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks

And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed

And it’s half my fault but I just like to play the victim

I’ll drink alcohol ’til my friends come home for Christmas

And I’ll dream each night of some version of you

That I might not have but I did not lose

Now you’re tire tracks and one pair of shoes

And I’m split in half, but that’ll have to do

Oh, that’ll have to do

My other half was you

I hope this pain’s just passin’ through

But I doubt it

And I love Vermont, but it’s the season of the sticks

And I saw your mom, she forgot that I existed

And it’s half my fault but I just like to play the victim

I’ll drink alcohol ’til my friends come home for Christmas

And I’ll dream each night of some version of you

That I might not have but I did not lose

Now you’re tire tracks and one pair of shoes

And I’m split in half, but that’ll have to do

Have to do
