  • Lyrics
  • This duet with British singer-songwriter Marsha Ambrosius is a song about contradiction and details a situation that Daley has found himself in a couple of times. He explained to Artist Direct: "It's about two people who for every reason could and should be together. There's nothing keeping them apart except the logistics of their own lives and things like that. They've never been able to quite admit how they feel, which is something I've been through. At that point, I felt like love can be such a contradiction when that situation happens. You spend so much time being alone when there is someone out there who you could very easily be with if it wasn't so complicated. That's what it is. People seem to relate to it in that way."
  • Daley wrote the song with Marsha Ambrosius. He told Artist Direct: "That was an amazing writing experience because she was on the same vibe as me that day. The way we wrote it really flowed."
