"It's about the toxic relationship that I have with myself," the singer shares. "I can barely afford what is good for my body let alone what's bad for it. I've tricked myself to believe this is what is good for me, that it's something that makes me happy. But I can't afford to do this to myself anymore, I can't afford a love that doesn't exist."
The release follows up the singers debut EP, no thank you, no thanks, which offered insight into the 18 year olds life and featured the previously released songs Fucked Myself Up and Fall Apart. The collection of songs weaved together themes of mental health, self doubt and the trials and tribulations that come with falling in love.
