Troye Sivan told Genius
about the day he wrote the song with Allie X, Bram Inscore, and his best friend Leland. "I was in my feelings that day about that particular situation," he said, referring to his feelings of guilt for going on tour and traveling the world in the midst of a breakup.
"And because we're all so close, they knew the ins and outs of the entire situation and knew the complexities of the situation," Sivan continued. "We were just having this conversation about, 'Let's try to write a song about it, but let's genuinely vent.' Let's not try and make me the victim or anything like that, because that's not the way it went down. Let's write an honest song about how the cookie crumbled and how sh---y that is that it happened like that."
