“It’s a chameleon. It’s the first song that I’ve ever written that has changed meanings for me,” Kelsea writes for The Boot.

“I wrote it from a breakup three years ago, because I had written a lot of ‘Get Over Yourself,’ ‘Miss Me More,’ ‘Graveyard’ kind of songs — angsty, dark, mad, sad. But I was so ready to be over it, and I think that to really be over it, you have to acknowledge the good. So that was my song of acknowledging the good, in a very bright way.

“And then when it was time to pick the single, this song kept raising its hand. And I was like, ‘Man. This isn’t where I’m at anymore, and I don’t know if I relate to it anymore like that.’ So I started listening to it, and it changed meanings for me. It’s a love song to me now, and it’s about a love that you’re nostalgic about, that doesn’t necessarily have to end. So it’s the last song on the record because, to me, it’s kind of like that forever, which I think will open up to start the next chapter of whatever that looks like.”
