Aluna Francis recalled the story of the song to Genius
"I was in the studio with Rock Mafia and I was just talking about a situation that I was going through. I think the most physical, poignant moment was lying in my bed after the person that the song was about had left. And I couldn't move. For hours. I was always like…You know in 'Get Out'? The Sunken Place? I think when something like that happens it seems really insane. You're like, 'What is wrong with me? Am I sick? Am I crazy?' So it was really intriguing for me to look at what caused such a strange reaction. So yeah, that was the source point of this song."
