Moonlight

Album: Just The Beginning (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • Here, Grace VanderWaal sings about dealing with depression and looking back on how it's possible for someone to change so much.

    "'Moonlight' is a specific story," she told Genius. "I knew someone struggling with mental health. At the time, it was still going on. Now it's all good. She is all good. At the time, it was quite an issue. When someone's going through that, they're not them anymore, they lose that spark, you know? They're a different person. That's kind of what that lyric means. Everyone sees them as picture perfect, but you know something. You can't see that spark anymore."
