Songfacts®:

  • This tearjerker written in 6/8, is about a couple who are addicted to crystal meth: "It's like a love story set in this really f--ked relationship that deals with addiction," frontwoman Brittany Howard explained to Q magazine. "It's just a weird time and place to love someone when you're in that world (of being a drug addict). It's not a healthy thing, by any means."
  • The song was inspired by an actual couple that Howard used to know. She explained to Uncut: "They were both addicted to drugs really bad, but they were both really in love with each other. It was so toxic and weird and I wanted to write s love song that wasn't like a normal love song that wasn't, 'I love you so much, we're together forever.' It's about two people ruining each other for everyone except themselves."
  • Howard sings:

    I'm gonna miss you and your Mickey Mouse tattoo.
    And you'll be leaving in your Honda Accord


    Asked if the Mickey Mouse tattoo and Honda Accord are real, Howard replied: "Well the Mickey Mouse tattoo is. I had to change the car because it was a very specific type and I tried not to give everything away."
