This song that eventually became the title track of my EP started with a melody idea I got for the chorus, and I just ran with it! I think I wrote about five choruses worth of lyrics in about half an hour! Obviously that wasn’t going to work so I had to edit it down. I then spent ages agonising over the verses which felt very hard.
Without wanting to force an interpretation – people have told me it means really different things to them than it does to me – it’s about how often we look for things from certain relationships that actually those relationships can’t provide, and as a result both parties are left a bit broken.
