This song is about a girl in emotional pain following a breakup. Rod Wave watches her dancing and pretending she’s fine, but he can see she’s hurt behind her makeup, her look, and her attitude. He recognizes someone hiding their feelings because he’s one of them: he had a story of pain as well, and hiding feelings is something he knows very well.
The video can be a good segue into a conversation about sunk costs. The time we spend thinking about past romances doesn’t allow us to move on to better things. The past is sunk and can’t be recovered, so it shouldn’t be factored into how we make decisions. Unfortunately, that’s easier said than done.
Thanks to Brad Scott for the recommendation!
