This song is about hope in the face of hardship and loss.


Verse 1

Remember that date that you thought went great,
then you never heard from her.
Remember that friend that you had for years
that you haven’t heard from since December.
Remember that first job that you loved so much,
then you were let go.
Remember that first amazing kiss
while you were freezing in the snow.

And isn’t it funny how things have a way
of working themselves out?
And the things that seemed so important then,
now you barely think about.


One door opens while another door closes.
Someone’s walking out and someone’s walking in.
One window slams shut, another’s wide open.
You’re looking out and someone’s looking in.
You know not what is in store for you.
You know not what is in store for you.
So keep on knocking on every door
until you find mine open.

Verse 2

Remember the first time that you fell in love
just to have her never call.
Remember your childhood house
that was finally bought off the market last fall.

The people and the places you thought would last forever
have faded with the changing seasons.
And while you think it’s all random and there is no rhyme,
well baby, there’s a reason.


Voice 1: You know not what is in store for you.
Voice 2: Keep on knocking. Keep on knocking on every door.
Voice 3: Until you find mine.
