In this song, Envy Of None lead singer Maiah Wynne does a post-mortem on a relationship that didn't work out, telling her ex, "I never said I love you." That might be true, but we get the sense from her yearning vocal that she had strong feelings for this person.
The song started with a chorus written by the group's bass player, Andy Curran. When he sent it to Wynne, she filled in the lyrics for the rest of the song.
"I tried to relate it to a relationship, but maybe a modern-day relationship with casual dating and hook-ups where you don't realize you have intense feelings for somebody until it's too late, and you've lost them and you never told them that you really love them, and now they're gone," she said in a Songfacts track by track
