Not everyone is in the public eye like Sivan and this song evolved into a concept that people can more readily identify with. "The idea of getting into a relationship when you're young, and waking up when you're 25, and you've given all of your young years to a particular person, that was super romantic and cool to me," he explained to Radio.com
. "And we started writing a song about leaving everything and running away and having absolutely no idea where you were going, or what you were going to do in the future, or whether this person is just going to be with you for two days and just be a fling, or is it going to be someone who you are going to spend the rest of your life with. And having all of those questions and still not caring about any of the answers because you're young and you don't have any responsibilities."
