This song has a wistful, doo-wop feel. This contrasts with certain lyrics, such as "How many women have you done and left like you left me?" leaving room for the song to be interpreted in multiple ways.
"For me, it's art but for anybody, it could be something that you once had, that has gone," Clarissa explained when she appeared on the Backstory Song podcast
. "That sort of the image of a cowboy riding into the sunset, that we think of all the time, but what about the person that the cowboy left? Like, how do they feel?"
This theme is also well represented in the minor feel during the ending of the song. It leaves us wanting more, wanting to know where he's going and why he left.
