Album: Here Comes the Cowboy (2019)

Songfacts®:

  • This tender all-acoustic ballad was described by Mac DeMarco to Q Magazine as "just a cute little song for my girlfriend."
  • The subject of this song, Instagram star Kiera McNally, began dating Mac DeMarco in 2009. He penned three songs about her on his 2014 album Salad Days. DeMarco told Huck: "Me and Kiera have known each other six years longer than we've dated. It took time for us to get here but she's part of who I am, I'm part of who she is, and I wouldn't want it any other way. I'm really lucky."
