Iris Lyrics - Mitchell Tenpenny


Iris by Mitchell Tenpenny is a passionate country ballad that explores the desire for deep connection and the fear of vulnerability. The song paints a picture of a man consumed by his feelings for a woman named Iris.

[Verse 1]
And I'd give up forever to touch you
'Cause I know that you feel me somehow
You're the closest to heaven that I'll ever be
And I don't wanna go home right now

Explanation of Verse 1:
 The song opens with a powerful statement. The narrator is willing to sacrifice everything just for a chance to touch Iris. He feels a profound connection with her, a feeling that surpasses anything else he's ever experienced. He doesn't want the night to end, wanting to prolong this blissful state.

[Verse 2]
'Cause all I could taste is this moment
And all I can breathe is your life
And sooner or later, it's over
I just don't wanna miss you tonight

Explanation of  Verse 2: 
The narrator emphasizes the intensity of the present moment. He savors every detail – the taste of the experience, the feeling of being alive because of her. He knows this moment won't last forever, and the fear of missing out intensifies his desire for connection.


[Chorus]
And I don't want the world to see me
'Cause I don't think that they'd understand
When everything's made to be broken
I just want you to know who I am, oh yeah
