"It is about something that's hard to even talk about but feels good to write about" - explains Lee - "It's about my sister who passed away when I was a little girl. I was six years old and she was three. It's affected my life and definitely affected my music writing, and it's made me who I am. It's one of those things that happens early enough in life that it forms you. I think in a lot of ways I made it a thing that I can use in a positive way in my life. I've learned from it and grown up, and I've always felt older. Twenty-four sounds young to me, it's weird."
Having lost a sister at such a young age put things in perspective for Lee, who says she cherishes making music and wants to love. "What else is there?" she ponders. "I don't care about the stupid things as much as I would if I hadn't been through that. The song is about me from the perspective of a child back then, and I go back to that place a lot of times. I went there and wrote the song that way. It's not the kind of thing that I would normally say on a megaphone in front of millions of people."
"It's something that changes you" - the singer stresses - "I love her, and I will always love her. Her spirit is always with us. I feel like I'll always want to have a little place for her on every record. On the last record, it was 'Hello', and I wrote that from the perspective of a child. I was talking about it in a little bit of a different way, but it's the same inspiration".
