McCarthy elaborated on the song in a statement: “This song is about a crush I had on someone who had hurt my friend and really didn’t deserve that kind of love from me. It took me a long time to finally come to terms with what had been in front of me the whole time, that this person was not worth longing for. Despite the subject, it’s really a jaunty song, and it feels really joyful whenever we play it now.

Moontype is Margaret McCarthy, Emerson Hunton, and Ben Cruz.
