''It was a period where I was really worried about my sister, and I felt like an enabler in helping her write a song as bleak as that song was. Like the musical equivalent of giving an alcoholic another beer: ‘I’m not going to support this.’ A lot of songs are written in retrospect, but this one felt like it was being written in real time, and I was like: ‘This is something we’ve got to write on the other side of this hill. We have to go through this in real life. You can’t always solve your problems in a song.'' - Finneas O'Connell (songwriter)
''Finneas and I both had the idea to make the song about each other, instead of just me and how I was feeling. We had a complete block and the way we got through it was to make it about us as siblings and what we mean to each other. The message behind the song is like Finneas is my brother and my best friend and no matter what happens, he's gonna always be there for me, and it's the same the other way around." - Billie Eilish
