About the inspiration of the single, Katie added how the “inspiration for the title came from a comment he made” to her about “not wanting to look him in the eyes.” Katie then “told him it was because” she was not “ready yet for that kind of intimacy.”

Going into detail about the aesthetics of the single, Katie explained to Eat This Music that when she was “writing this song” she was “just jamming on” her guitar.

Expanding on the previous statement, Katie explained ow she “never got a chance to tell this person how they made” her feel and she “thought the song was” a great way to do that. “It would be a shame to let it just sit in the dark without any exposure,” Katie continues.
