Staring at my phone
Are you spending it alone?
Are you with someone, someone I used to be?"
These lyrics are so clever because she's comparing what she hopes his situation is to her own. She wishes him happy birthday, but then says something sad about her life right now, showing their differing situations. This leads me to believe that she doesn't actually hope his birthday is a happy one, she hopes he's as miserable as she is without her. The production is simple, (because it is the acoustic version of the song), with just acoustic guitar backing it. Their harmonies are beautiful as always, and both of their vocals shine against the simple production. I hope the studio non-acoustic version of this song is still as sparsely produced, because this ironic, depressing song needs the lyrics and vocals to be highlighted, not the instrumentals.
