This song was written about a miscarriage experienced by Tyler Bancroft and his partner.
About the song, Tyler Bancroft explained to NOISEY;
"Miscarriage is a unique kind of loss in that you're mourning what could have been. It's a lonely kind of loss, because miscarriage is rarely discussed. And it's a loss of control—realizing that the future may not turn out the way you had imagined it. For me this was especially disarming since I didn't realize how much I wanted a child until I was faced with the possibility of never having one. Miscarriage strips the joy from pregnancy and turns it into a source of grief and anxiety."
