about

I like to call this one the “anti-FOMO” song. It's a celebration of missing out in order to do a deep dive with something or someone you really care about.

lyrics

LYRICS:
It’s on the tip of my tongue and I’m searching for the perfect words
Heart is flickering quick in my chest like a hummingbird’s
Whatever comes my way now for better or worse
Oh I, I’m in it with you

I, I, I would shut these other doors just hopin’
I, I, I would shut these other doors just hopin’ to open yours

I’m a bundle of wants and desires and fears and dreams
I’m a sweater and every thread pulls a different seam
And I’ve never been any good at the choosing between
But now, it’s easy

I, I, I would shut these other doors just hopin’
I, I, I would shut these other doors just hopin’ to open yours

It doesn’t mean that everything will be perfect
And it doesn’t mean that anything will get easier
But looking at you I feel so sure
Like I never felt, never felt before
That the one I would choose again and again
The one I would choose again and again is

You, you, I would shut these other doors just hopin’ to open yours
I, I, I would shut these other doors just hopin’ to open yours
