  • Lyrics
  • The song's music video was shot in Lissie's hometown of Rock Island, Illinois. "I wanted to shoot the video at home because that's where my earliest memories of heartache come from," she said.

    "I wanted someone so bad who didn't want me back, and that experience kind of shaped my approach to relationships for years to come. The song is a cautionary tale to avoid those kinds of heartbreakers, so it felt right to go home and revisit that time."
