Call It Fate, Call It Karma Lyrics

Close the door,
Not all the way
We don’t understand
We don’t understand
So don’t you go wanna remind me
I don’t know a thing
And some of us remember
And some run out of place

Can I waste all your time here on the sidewalk?
Can I...

    something about this song is just so beautiful. honestly i think it’s about being deeply in love with sum1 who just doesn’t work with you. they know that, but it’s still devastating. idk the line “close the door but not all the way” kinda feels like u know that it’s over but ur heart doesn’t want it to be. you don’t want to be reminded this isn’t the person for you cuz you are so deeply connected to them, wishing you could watxh them forever. you feel abandoned. this is probably really stupid and makes no sense but idk

    it's about our understanding of the universe or rather what what 'we don't understand' but it's written in a way which seems like it's about a person?

    I just thought of that bit in ghostbusters where Bill murray is like "Call it fate, call it karma"

    It’s about when you love someone and they just leave you
