Songfacts®:

  • In February 2013, School of Seven Bells' Benjamin Curtis was diagnosed with T-cell lymphoblastic lymphoma. Curtis did not recover and died on December 29, 2013. The group's final album, SVIIB, which was mainly written before Curtis's death, was completed by his bandmate, Alejandra Deheza, and released in February 2016.
  • GQ asked Deheza if there was there any song on SVIIB that she felt that she wrote for herself. The songstress replied referring to this track: "When I first met Benjamin, he taught me how to feel safe. How to feel safe in a relationship, how to feel safe in love, how to just let go and let somebody love me, and for me to feel safe loving someone back. That line in that song, 'with me you're love-safe,' that was this mantra he was repeating to me over and over during that time."
