Ryan Kinder Leaves It to Chance in New Video

“Close” Takes on Love and Fate

Do you believe in second chances in love? Ryan Kinder does.

“The universe has a way of getting what it wants, and that’s what this song is about,” Kinder says in the video for “Close,” a groovin’ track about a love that circles back around and simply lets fate take the wheel.

We see two old friends/flames have a fortuitous meeting while one is on tour, and the sparks are flying from the moment she accidentally causes him to spill his coffee. They take a chance, spend the day together and see where it goes, all by simply allowing the universe to work its magic, as Kinder implied in his opening line.

My mama has always told me that if something is meant to be, it will always find its way back to you. And for the lovebirds in this song, that certainly seems to be the case.

But then the mysterious cliffhanger comes. At the end of their romantic day, do they make their own choice to stay together? Or do they let chance decide?

What happens at the end?! I’m so invested — there’d better be a sequel, Ryan Kinder!
