Arthur explained to Digital Spy
how the song took on an additional meaning:
It's funny because now I guess it can be perceived as a comeback. It wasn't meant to be like, 'I'm coming back and I expected all this.' Coming back from the edge was, as cheesy a cliché as it may sound, was the most honest concept I could have for an album. I was in a super dark place and having – I don't want to get too deep – but having suicidal thoughts. I was like, 'I can't f---ing do this anymore – I'm done. There's no purpose to my life anymore if it's not music, and no-one's going to care if I release some.'"
