Miller sings of the difficulties of love on this Pharrell-produced, Jazz-inspired cut. "Just a little taste and you know she got you," he wails before eventually choosing to leave his pain in the "rear view." Miller told MTV's RapFix Live host Sway Calloway that he didn't write the song about a specific female, but he did draw from real-life experiences. "What I like to do when I'm writing a song like this is something in my life that happens. I take the emotion," he said.
We hear Miller singing about how one has can experience a high after going through heartbreak.
"Listen to me, I'mma set you free. Yeah, he ain't gonna break your heart again. Go through the worst to reach the ecstasy. When your imagination's on pretend."
Miller explained the lyric on RapFix Live: "I'm a little bit weird with saying exactly what is going on in my life, so you take that emotion and you create a situation in your head, and you come up with something. Then, you apply that emotion into that situation and build characters," he said. "You gotta go through the really bad to appreciate that ecstasy — that actual feeling of ecstasy."
