Twigs penned the song in one go with Ethan P. Flynn, her writing partner on "Fallen Alien" and "Mirrored Heart." The singer explained to Billboard
that she was feeling frustrated that day as she reflected on her background as a woman of color from a loving, creative, but broken family. Now that she's getting older, there are more people depending on her, but what sort of example is she to look up to?
"I look at a lot of strong women who maybe I'm supposed to model myself after, and they seem too majestic," said Twigs. "I don't relate to that. My heart lies in something that's far more vulnerable."
