“It's a song about letting go, accepting your broken heart, accepting that pain might be sticking around a while longer but also seeing that it was probably time for you to be given some tough love anyway. The brutal honesty when someone tells you they don’t love you anymore, when you’re fresh out of your teens, that’s gonna mess you up for a while. This song is a moment of bliss in the terrible grief of heartbreak - knowing that you gave your absolute all and it still wasn’t enough - but also looking back at how young I was, the innocent way you love for the first time. It’s gratitude for the harsh lessons of heartbreak: your skin is thicker, the relationship you’ve built with yourself in that time - it hurt bad, but it was about time to get out in the world on my own anyway.”
