“I remember when we were younger
Swinging in your backyard & playing doorbell dixie”
Doorbell Dixie is a single about childhood sweethearts. This playful folk tune captures the innocence of young love and the reminisce of walking down memory lane. The lyrics and the instrumentation, up until the bridge, paint a picture of these two swinging on swing sets, skipping around their neighborhood, and playing ‘Ding Dong Ditch’. In the bridge, the lyrics stop looking back in time and jump to the present. Grace Bates, lead vocalist, sings for reassurance about how much and how long he will love her. The song sonically swells but remains playful, leaving unanswered questions as to how their relationship is in the present tense.
“Tell me you’ll love me tomorrow
Tell me you loved me yesterday
That you see right through my sorrow
& you love me just the same”
