This heartbreak song is about breaking up with a girlfriend hoping they regret ending it. Fans were wondering if Niall is singing about any of his ex-girlfriends. In an interview on Smallzy’s Surgery, Niall was asked about the success of his song, he said: “It’s a special one. I actually wrote this song the day after I wrote ‘This Town’ so I felt like it got off to an alright start when I started writing the album. It’s a very nice, beautiful song and means a lot to me. I just can’t wait for people to hear it. Hopefully fingers cross that people are going to like it, obviously a lot different to ‘Slow Hands.”
He said of the song in an interview with BBC News: “I would obviously like it to go to number one, that would be the dream, but it is what it is. If it’s getting a lot love and jumps in at number two or number three, I don’t mind.” Niall was pictured standing on the left on the escalator in the London Underground in the song’s promotional post on Social Media.
