In this song, the British singer-songwriter Benedict Cork moves on from a breakup by scorching the ground it was built on, telling his ex, "Have a good life, I'll see you never."
"That's basically saying all the things you wish you could've said in the moment, but you don't," Cork explained on the Songfacts Podcast
. "You know when you have an argument, or a breakup, or a relationship breaks down, and there's all those things that you've played back in your head from years ago that you wish you had said in the moment, why don't we just put that into a song?"
One particular burn in the lyric: "I never really liked your mama."
