"It’s about a girl. At the start, she’s naive, reckless. She does something that is… unforgivable. And one day, she goes to apologize, but she loses her nerve. She’s weak. She lies to him. And then, she thinks that she might—in the smallest ways—be able to make his life just a little bit better. And so she wakes up every day just to do that. And some days she thinks it’s for him, other days she worries that it’s for herself. It was really just a way to survive what I’ve done, but I think that I do make you happy, I know that you make me happy."
