In Their Words: “‘Lonely Door’ is a song that has taken on a different meaning in our new world since it was written several years ago. The line ‘things don’t matter much anymore’ was spoken by my now 100-year-old grandfather after the loss of his wife (and my dad’s mom), and it served as inspiration for this song about love, loss and longing. We used the analogy of walking through a lonely door to capture that painful feeling of heartbreak after losing a loved one. Although the lyrics of the song depict the heartbreak as being one’s own fault because of mistakes that were made, we are all experiencing those feelings of loneliness and sadness in different ways as we endure the effects of these times. We just want everyone to know that they’re not alone; we’ll be able to walk back through that lonely door when this is all over and we can all be together.” — Javan Johnson, Son of John
