“I was already in love with him from that first moment, on that first date. Part of me was like, ‘Well, I can go home and cry myself to sleep and be in bed for the whole weekend and just be in misery or I can really look at what I’m actually in love with this person.”

Maya McClean, singer, actress, & dancer toured with Prince for over 13 years. She shares her experience falling in love, being inspired by it, and driven to work on the qualities that she loves in the other person on herself. The song is inspired by the deep longing for the other and the self-awareness that comes with the attachment.
