“We did this vocal in one take. Kyle asked me if I wanted to re-sing it and I said "no". This song does what all my favorite songs do - it tells the truth,” Cartwright explains in a press statement. “There is no trick to it - it's just the raw emotion of being in the dead center of a heartbreak and trying to find your way out. It was easy to write because it was hard to go through. If you've been there before, you know. And if you're there right now, I hope this helps.”
