Songfacts®:

  • Bleachers main man Jack Antonoff explained the track's meaning to HMV.com: "It's this weird song I wrote about how I wondered if it would be easier to be with someone who didn't speak your language."
  • The song is the closing track of Bleachers second album, Gone Now. The record's title was taken from this song's opening lines:

    Gone now
    Thinking what's gone now
    Like a part of me walked out, oh
  • Antonoff said about the album's artwork: "The feeling with the cover art is it's like I'm dead, I'm writing from the perspective that I'm not here anymore and looking back at a moment in time."
