Songfacts®:

  • This melodic rock anthem tackles the repercussions of infidelity. Tommy Vext is heartbroken that his girl has fallen for someone else. Despite this, a part of him wants to keep the relationship going.

    So I keep you at arm's length and let you go
    But I don't wanna give you away


    The singer's partner cannot comprehend the consequences of her unfaithfulness.

    You think you know that you know, but you really don't know me
    I know you love so hard, and it's killing me slowly
    And now I can't eat, can't sleep, knowing that you're not lonely
