Album: A Brief Inquiry into Online Relationships (2018)
Charted: 26

Songfacts®:

  • This electropop song details romantic angst as Matt Healy sings about a one-sided conversation with his girl.

    I only called her one time, maybe it was two times
    Don't think it was three times, can't be more than four times
    Think we need to rewind, you text that boy sometimes!
    Must be more than three times!
    Didn't mean to two-time ya, two-time ya


    It seems both parties have been unfaithful to some extent and the song details how social media can fuel such relationship troubles. The lyrical content fits in well with the album's title, A Brief Inquiry Into Online Relationships.
  • Speaking to Radio 1 DJ Phil Taggart, Healy explained the song's dancehall style beat came about by accident when he was working on another track that got sped up by accident. He added: "This song is just about fun and relationships and life. This is the one 1975 song that I'll listen to when I go out for a run."
