The idea for this downtempo piano ballad came to Giveon and Sevn Thomas when they and a friend stepped into a sports bar to watch a NBA playoff game. When their friend spotted a reminder of his ex-girlfriend there, exactly one year after their split, it gave Giveon and Thomas an idea for a song.
Giveon and Thomas were also going through breakups, and when they got to the studio, the two began reflecting on their own heartbreak. "It was almost like a therapy session," recalled Thomas to Billboard
. "We let our guard down completely with each other and just talked about real-life situations."
The sessions led to the Take Time
EP; this song finds Giveon drawing inspiration from how he handles a day that is the anniversary of a heartbreak.
