The lyrics serve as a candid letter to the friend, confronting the feelings of grief while reminiscing, longing for the long-gone version of that person.

Written by Izzy Maher and recorded at Pharaoh Studios in Plainville, CT under the guidance of Recording Engineer Pace Ferro, the song features the collaboration of multi-instrumentalist Julian Sherwood on the instrumental part. The song was also produced, mixed, and mastered by Nico Koufakis.
