“I wrote it a few days after I split up with my ex-boyfriend. It’s about the complexity of a break up and actually I wanted to paint a picture of the day that we broke up – the things that were said and what went down. It’s about the realisation that you don’t just fall out of love with someone, that’s not how life works.”
