I just wanted to write a song about it and turn it into this really sad love story. It’s like me and someone that I’m in love with on a carousel. I’m behind them, and it just spins and spins. You can never reach the person because you’re glued to the carousel and can’t move. That’s what I felt in one of my relationships. So, I wrote a song about it in that way.
