The song unfolds like a diary entry, each verse a snapshot of the tumultuous emotions that accompany leaving behind familiar comforts.

"I'm leaving, so don't try to change me. Cause what kills me makes me / I’m leaving. I know it’s not your fault. You never cared at all. At least I tell myself So it hurts less, when I leave..."

"Looking in mirrors and I see through myself. Been trying to look like everyone else..."
