As a liberated woman, Ava Max doesn't like it when men try to rescue her and ask her to move in. According to a Genius attribution
, she tells them. "No, no, no. I didn't ask for your help. I got my own place. I can be independent. I am no damsel in distress."Oh, no damsel in distress, don't need to save me
Once I start breathing fire, you can't tame me
This lyric came when Ava Max was joking with people in the studio, yelling, "I am no damsel in distress. I wish I could just put that in the song." The other songwriters thought it was a great idea and incorporated the line into the tune.
