Love can make people a little crazy, to the point where they start repeating their words. That's what happens to Yamagata in this song, as tries desperately to get some affection:Everybody's talking how I can't can't be your love
But I want want want to be your love
Many of her songs have personal inspirations, but they are often transformed into universal themes, as is the case here - everybody craves love. Said Yamagata
: "I see pain in other people that I feel and I want to figure out solutions to it. So sometimes the writing is about investigating why we're doing certain things to each other, or why we can't be our authentic selves, and more heady stuff."
