''Sometimes one partner can be like, ‘The way you passed me the butter this morning, I kinda feel like we’re going to be over in a month and we need to talk’ and he’s like, ‘I just passed you the f—ing butter, what are you talking about?’ and that’s how I felt the song should go, ‘We’re growing apart, you don’t spoon any more, like it’s all over’.'' - Pink
''Nate wasn't sure that he wanted to be on a collaboration with a pop star. Their label is an independent label, they weren't sure. And I just kept telling them—well, I kind of tricked him into doing it, because we wrote the first verse the first day and basically the chorus, and then I went home and I was looking over the lyrics and thinking about the song, and it was never supposed to be a collaboration. We were just collaborating as writing partners. But I was like, 'This song is a conversation between lovers'. And he had to do it because he's my favorite voice right now, aside from probably Adele.'' - Pink
"Writing the song was a whole different learning experience and was really fueled by the fact that Pink is so strong and independent and so very much herself. At the end of the day it's so hard to argue against her because what she does is always so great.'' - Nate Ruess
