  • Here, NF depicts a romantic relationship reaching a breaking point. The rapper takes the blame for the difficulties and fights.

    I know that I can be a difficult person
    I'm a stress case, drive you up the wall when I'm workin'
    Actually, I'm probably worse when I'm not, you don't deserve it

    As the song develops, it becomes clear that NF is rapping from the perspective of a married man. We glean that he is addressing his wife Bridgette Doremus, whom he married in September 2018.
  • During the chorus, NF promises Bridgette that he's changing into a better person. He is optimistic that things will be alright, but he just needs a little time to show her he's worth it.
  • NF collaborated with songwriter and producer Tommee Profitt to write this song. The pair have co-created many of NF hits, including "Let You Down" and "Lie." Under the name PRO_FITT, he has also remixed for other artists such as Colton Dixon, and Britt Nicole.
