The Story behind the Single
This short song packs a heavy punch. In the early days of love, one flip flops between sentimental confessions and playing it cool. That’s the headspace this song was written in.
Flyght Club was in the early weeks of dating a girl. He was feeling emotions that our detached age might consider too early for the duration of the courtship. This song was the outlet for those emotions.
You want to be known deeply by the one you love. You also want to know the other person deeply. In the world we all wear masks, to protect ourselves not just from viruses but also from intimacy that might blowback and hurt us. And yet there’s a level of love that remains locked unless one opens oneself up to the possibility of hurt.
To know, and to be known – that is what this song is about. It’s also about the private aspects of love – moments spent not with the lover, but with oneself thinking about them.
