The song is about Chantal's first love committing suicide and how he's "all around her" now. Speaking with CBC Radio
, she said it was a song about him and about "what it felt like to be told something so horrible."
"When I was about 18, the boy I loved as a teenager, he was amazing, he was really an amazing guy," she explained. "Everybody was just kind of in awe of him and he had a lot of phenomenal qualities and, I think, almost too much awesomeness for this world and it ended badly. He had a quick turnaround with, I think, schizophrenia, which led to a psychotic depression. And he found an old antique gun and figured out how to make the thing work and he took his life."
