Daniel

Songfacts®:

  • Dia Frampton is the lead singer of Meg & Dia, a band that she formed with her sister, who have released a number of lo-fi, folky albums. Nine months after the group were dropped by Warner Brothers, Frampton made her first appearance as a contestant on the first season of NBC's reality talent program The Voice. She eventually finished as runner-up to Javier Colon. This song was written about a boyfriend Frampton broke up with in the period between Meg & Dia losing their record contract and her appearances on The Voice. Frampton told Billboard magazine: "I didn't even change the name. It's really strange when you're getting so emotional. While I was cutting the vocals, I was thinking about all the things we could have had. The vocal [on the album] is the very first demo. [Producer] Toby Gad said there's no emotion like the first one. When I wrote it, it had only been a week after we broke up. So we kept that raw vocal track."
