  • Lyrics
  • Here, Kehlani sings about a man she loves who is careless of her feelings. She gives herself advice knowing the relationship is toxic. The songstress explained the inspiration for the emotional ballad when she debuted the song on Zane Lowe's Beats1 show.

    "I was just out of a really bad relationship with someone who I really thought was going to be like the one person for me and ended up showing me so many times that they weren't," Kehlani said. "I realized there's a bunch of girls who are going through the same thing and they needed to hear from somebody."
