How Does It Feel

Album: Limitless (2016)
  • This song finds Jenna McDougall singing about manipulative relationships and how easy it is to be being hoodwinked when you're so used to being in them. She explained to Kerrang: "I really wanted to keep it as relatable as possible. I wanted people to be able to say it was about their parents or their friends or their romantic partner.

    It's about calling someone out that's suppressed you and saying you're delusional and you've created a whole world of ideals and forced them on me, and this is about waking up to that. The lyric is literally 'Waking up to a nightmare.'

    It's just about opening your eyes to even the people you love as being a negative influence in your life at times. We're involved in many relationships in every area of our lives and sometimes you might not know any better or that you don't deserve better. So, I wanted to speak to those people."
