  • Lyrics
  • This song was inspired by the difficulties Cyrus was having in her relationship with her fiancé Liam Hemsworth before they called a halt to their romance. "I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day - emotionally it was such a hard time," Cyrus told Fashion magazine. "It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It's a time when you want to leave but you can't. It's also about moving on."
  • The song was produced by Mike WiLL Made It, who also served as executive producer for Bangerz. Will told Billboard magazine that despite the song's modern Dubstep/Trap sounds, he wanted Cyrus to keep to her Nashville roots with her vocals. "I told her, 'Keep your Country twang,'" he said. "That's what's ill about her."
