  • Here, Zara Larsson sings about longing for former boyfriend.

    I try to forget about you, baby
    And I die when I think of you with someone else and
    I don't know why, I don't know why you're dancing in my mind
    From the breaking of the day to the middle of the night


    Larsson thinks her ex may believe this is about him, but she told Genius it's not really about anyone specifically. However, she did "take inspiration from being in that situation at one point in time."
  • The song was started by Swedish songwriters Noonie Bao and Lotus IV; their other collaborations include Zedd's "Stay" and Rita Ora's "Let You Love Me."

    Larsson then jumped aboard and finished the tune off with the help of Californian songsmith Ilsey Juber (Shawn Mendes' "Mercy", Mark Ronson and Miley Cyrus' "Nothing Breaks Like A Heart").
