The track, driven by piano, light synths and percussion discusses the ending of a bad relationship and the myriad of accompanying emotions as the message is made crystal clear through lyrics “I know it’s gonna hurt/ And I know it’s gonna sting/ And you really don’t wanna leave/ Just get it over with.”
The seven-time Grammy Award winner further elaborated in a statement: “We have all been through situations like this when there is really nothing more to say…. You know he’s not right and you just need to do what you need to do. There is also an element of hope in the song that after you do what you need to do, things will get better.”
