Songfacts®:

  • This melancholy ballad sounds like Sara Bareilles is singing about not wanting to let go of a past relationship, but it's actually about missing the Obamas. She told Forbes: "What can I say? I'm a fan, I miss them, I miss them deeply every day, so gonna write a song about it. That's all I know how to do."
  • Amidst the Chaos contains another Sara Bareilles ode to The Obamas: "If I Can't Have You."
  • The song originated from a piano loop that Bareilles wrote on her phone during a plane trip.
