Apart

Songfacts®:

  • Avant explained the background to this song to The Boombox: "The reason I wrote this record is because sometimes you can be with someone but you can find yourself growing apart not really knowing it though. Just being busy," he said. "You have things you're doing. That person has things they're doing. And then you come back to the table and y'all don't like the same things y'all did three months ago, you know what I'm sayin'. So you find yourselves growing apart."
