"Sometimes you fall in love with what you wish you were." That's what was on Tristen's mind when the Nashville singer-songwriter wrote this tune about a wildly emotive woman who falls in love with a statue.
"I was very into the idea that we sometimes fall in love with an ideal person who's not who we are," she told the Songfacts Podcast
in 2022, "and I definitely picked somebody that was way more stable than I was because I felt it was more attractive than the self-loathing that comes out when you pick your partner. It's also wondering where those emotions go because some people are more emotional than others. Do they just get stuffed inside and then they come out in other ways?"
