Songfacts®:

  • Lauv croons about heartache on this synthy pop track.

    I tried spending my nights under
    Someone new
    But the truth is
    I could spend my whole life getting over you


    The song was released on February 14, 2018. Rather than using Valentine's Day to debut a lovey-dovey new single, Lauv seems to have had in mind all those spending the holiday struggling to move on from an ex.
  • Lauv explained the song's meaning: "The lyrics are about the feeling after a breakup where you think you might literally never get over it, and you're living with what feels like an endless cycle of self-destruction, loathing, and emptiness."
