The fourteenth track on The Pains Of Growing is one of its more optimistic songs. It finds Alessia Cara acknowledging there is light at the end of the tunnel after struggling with her transformation from a normal Canadian teenager to a famous adult musician – her growing pains.
Healing and patience are lovers Don't place the blame on your heart just to make 'em stop Just take your time to recover 'Cause it's easier said, it's easier said than done
Cara explained in a track-by-track video that everyone has their own way of getting to the light at the end of the tunnel, and "it takes a different amount of time for everybody, and it's a lot easier said than done."
She added that it's okay if you're still feeling sad and taking a bit longer than everybody else to work through your growing pains, "because I say in the song, healing and patience are lovers, because it's like they go hand in hand - healing and patience go hand in hand, and you can't heal without being patient with yourself; you can't rush your heart to do what you want it to do, you have to let it do it on its own, and that's okay."
