She continued: ‘It was a really heavy period in my life where I’d had a lot of changes that had happened overnight.
‘I’d had a big breakup, and my career wasn’t going well. And I sort of found myself in this space where everything that I was used to, just my day-to-day routine, had abruptly stopped.
‘And I just didn’t know how to get my life back together, or what my life looked like with all of these changes, and how to get a routine going again, and just how to get my happiness back and feeling normal. So that was the space that I was in when I wrote this song.’

She said: ‘It was a hard one to put out there. Sometimes it takes me back to that place, which was so heavy.
‘But it also makes me really happy when I hear it because I figured it out for myself.’

In 2016, the Fancy hit-maker admitted to The Cruz Show that harsh criticism made her want to ‘quit life.’
She said: ‘It can make a person feel like, “Well, what do I have left to live for?”
‘There were times when I just wanted to quit life, the whole thing, really.
‘Sometimes I would drive through the canyons to get my horses, and I’d be like, “What if I just kept driving off the canyon?”‘
