explained the meaning behind this song: "There two friends of mine, they were basically like, 'Well, I'm moving, so we're gonna break up in three months.' And I was just like, 'What's the f--king point of staying in a relationship if you know exactly when its gonna end?' It's sort of like knowing the day you're gonna die." In the song, we watch as a couple count down to their planned break up, even though the guy secretly does not want the split to happen. The pair do ultimately break up, although the guy holds on to the memories for years to come: "Remember me, I'm waiting here/Disappointed, hanging on/Stayed behind while you moved on/Wish you were here."
