The third single from Maggie Rogers's debut EP Now That The Light Is Fading finds her singing about how she feels better emotionally when she's with her man. Rogers explained to BBC Radio 1's MistaJam:
"There's this sort of sexual cliché in the song. There's a lyric that says you turn me on, but if you listen to the rest of the lyrics, that is actually about emotional stability and being on and off and finding a person that grounds you. I think that's one of the most important things to me in relationships."
Maggie Rogers wrote the song with one of her best friends, Nick Das. She explained to Nylon magazine: "One of the goals for this new work, this new music, was to really, truly play and delve into rhythm. This song starts with a bass line and there are about eight different percussion tracks happening at any given moment. It took a lot of work to get them to all sit just right, but when we finally figured it out, I couldn't stop jumping up and down with glee."
Rogers told Q magazine all the songs on her Now That The Light EP were written standing up on the reasoning that she "really wanted to make sure they made you move."
