Album: Friends & Lovers (2014)

Songfacts®:

  • Hopeful yet tinged with sadness, this song finds Ambrosius encouraging the listener not to be afraid when love comes knocking on the door. "There's so many ways to spin what love is for you," she said. "It can be the most joyful and terrifying time to love at the level that you feel you deserve."

    "With this song it was literally that morning, standing on the balcony, cup of coffee overlooking wherever in the world …I read the morning paper but there's nothing in there about the love I have for someone," Ambrosius added. "Yet this is the biggest news I have in my life…no one is reading about little old me. But for me, it was an affirmation and reminder of what to do when that is exactly what it is."
