Behind Closed Doors

Songfacts®:

  • This song deals with the suffering that presents itself when no one else is looking. Singer Leigh Kakaty told The Birmingham News: "Behind closed doors is where a lot of people's pain starts from. If you can give people a song they can relate to, maybe they can change their life and make it happier by moving forward."
  • The video is the third in a trilogy, all directed by Johan Carlen. The clip is actually the first portion of a story that has been told in reverse, starting with "Trenches" and "Deal With The Devil."

    The trilogy follows a woman who battles her demons. In the "Behind Closed Doors" clip, we see her cutting herself and destroying her surroundings as she lashes out.
