  • I think the nature of breakups, one person is always going to get the shorter end of

  • the stick.

  • And I just got lucky and I think I do have guilt about that.

  • I left, went on tour, got to see the world, met someone new really soon afterwards.

  • It's all in there.

  • WithThe Good Side” I was writing with my best friend Leland and Allie X and Bram

  • Inscore, who's a team I am extremely comfortable with.

  • We've written together for a good few years now.

  • I was in my feelings that day about that particular situation.

  • And because we're all so close, they knew the ins and outs of the entire situation and

  • knew the complexities of the situation.

  • We were just having this conversation about, "Let's try to write a song about it, but let's genuinely vent."

  • Let's not try and make me the victim or anything like that, because that's not the way it went

  • than it is for you.

  • And I apologize, I wish that this wasn't the way things were going down.

  • Your go-to person to call is not there anymore or shouldn't be.

  • While I was off getting to see all these amazing places and having all these crazy experiences

  • I would take out my phone be like, "Oh shit, no."

  • Put it back in my pocket.

  • I think it will happen.

  • I'm sure that I will bump into him at some point and I've been watching from afar everything

  • he's been up to and I am super proud of him.

  • That relationship I learned so much that it set me up for the rest of my life.
