Based on the song of the same name by Benjamin Scheuer, Hibernate with Me is a gentle reminder that no matter how sad, small, or scared you feel, you are always worthy of love, and that brighter days are always ahead.
Sometimes you feel small. Sometimes you feel shy.
Sometimes you feel worried, and you might not know why.
Sometimes you want nobody to see.
Darling, you can hibernate with me.
If you feel scared or lost, or even just a little shy, love means there will always be a place to hibernate together.
A place that’s cozy, warm, and safe.
