On the song, Dre Babinski sings of the pain of not being able to requite someone’s love.
“Can’t find a way to fall in love with you / Can’t find a way to fall in love with you / You worship everything I do / But I know I can’t find a way to fall in love,” she sings on the chorus of the piano-and-drum-driven ballad.
In the song’s accompanying video, Babinski is seen wandering through her home, with the water in the faucet aligning sideways, glasses falling, and other indications symbolizing a heartbreaking form of cognitive dissonance.
“I wanted to make a video that was far less literal than the song itself,” Babinski said in a statement, “but externalized the same emotional core – that the world as I know it is suddenly disoriented. We brought to life the scene from the single’s artwork with fishing wire, blowdryers, and a platform that shifted to a 45-degree angle that the camera and table/chair was mounted to. I had to hold on for dear life.”
