The lyrical content in this track is common, but relatable, and presented in a beautiful way. Throughout the song, Jackson is talking to the man she loves, as if they are on a phone conversation. The pre-chorus contains some of the best lyrics in the song:
"Because everyday I lay awake
Dreaming of our mistakes
Hoping that one day you'll put me out of my pain
I'm tired of laying there
Crying all my tears with fear
Should I finally wake up"
This song could be interpreted in so many ways, but I see it as Jackson needs to wake up from her heartbreak, and stop believing that the one she loves is going to come back to her. The second verse is also masterful ,as Jackson includes the lyric "I want you to shut up" which would seemingly disrupt the flow of the song, but it makes it even more honest, open, and beautiful.
Piano ballads filled with emotion like this one are rarities in country music, but Jackson brings them back with even more passion than most popular ones. Jackson has had an incredible start to her career, and her growing fan base will surely support her when she puts out an EP sometime in the future.
