Nothing's Wrong
by Haim

Album: Something To Tell You (2017)

Songfacts®:

  • This hooky call-and-response tune has a sunny, Southern California feel to it. However its upbeat vibe masks darker lyrics about facing the truth about a failing relationship. Danielle Haim told Pitchfork:

    "This song started out with that guitar lick. And it starts a narrative that [spans] some of the record, of dealing with coming back from tour and realizing something's changed in a relationship: You're sleeping back-to-back, maybe you don't want to admit to yourself that something's wrong."

    Este Haim added: Sometimes you can be in a relationship and feel a shift, like, Something doesn't feel right, but I know the second that I voice it, it's out in the open, and I can't take it back. That's a lot of what we were feeling."
  • Haim first road-tested this song during festival dates in the summer of 2016. It was debuted live at The Observatory in Santa Ana on May 17, 2016.
