  • Lyrics
  • Tori Kelly married her German basketball player husband André Murillo on May 20, 2018. While blissfully happy in her relationship with Murillo, the songstress was also grieving, as her parents were ending their marriage. This song finds Kelly describing how she felt torn between "2 places" as she went back and forth between feeling happy and sad.

    I'm in between the two, standing still and on the run
    Don't know what to do, I'm in two places at once
    I feel like the moon tryna stay up for the sun
    Heart is so confused 'cause it's two places at once
  • Kelly wrote "2 Places" with Tayla Parx (Ariana Grande's "Thank U, Next" and "7 Rings") and Nate Campany (Owl City's "Gold and "Embers"). She walked into the session feeling overwhelmed by her emotions, and opened up to the other two about how she was feeling. The three of them fed off that to write this emo song.
