Songfacts®:

  • This track is about Aurora's childlike philosophy. "That song is about how I'd rather see the world through the eyes of a child because everything is a bit better," she explained to The Independent. "I care a lot about people's inner child and I am very determined to never lose my inner child. I get why we need all these layers to survive. It is a very tough world [and] I think sometimes we forget that child, sometimes we lose it and I think that's a bad thing."
