I'm Yours

Album: Four Pink Walls (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Alessia Cara wrote this song on a guitar in New Jersey, on a curb next to a garbage can. "It's about being reluctant to fall for somebody, because you're so happy with yourself initially, and things are fine, and then somebody comes along, and they're so perfect, and you just hate it," she told iHeartRadio. "You hate everything about them, and they gross you out even though they're so nice, and they're perfect.'"
  • This sassy track is Cara's effort to write a "happy love song that wasn't nice" - she calls it an "FU love song."

    Cara told MTV News: "Sometimes falling for someone isn't always that great. Sometimes you were fine the way you were, but you can't help it. I just wanted to play off that feeling: I was perfectly fine, why did you have to ruin it by being perfect and awesome?"
