DESCRIPTION: This is a song about infatuation and how much more powerful that can feel than the fundamentals of true love. How dangerous it could be to mistake infatuation for true love, and how such infatuations could cause idealization, allow you to rationalize making poor choices, and even cause you to put on a façade in order to appease the subject of your desire. Anything really, to satiate this impulse to be with this glowing human being, who as it turns out is 99% fabricated by your own imagination.
