Here, The Weeknd addresses a past relationship. He expresses regret for running away from the romance and breaking her heart.
There are several clues that The Weeknd is referencing his relationship with Bella Hadid, whom he dated on and off between 2015 and 2019. During the first and second verses he recalls an encounter with an ex in a club. <i>I saw you dancing in a crowded room You look so happy when I'm not with you But then you saw me, caught you by surprise A single teardrop falling from your eye</i> Ten days after their final breakup, The Weeknd showed up at the Los Angeles club Catch One. According to reports, Hadid was already there, having a good time. However, when The Weeknd arrived, she immediately left.
The Weeknd and Hadid dated between May 2015 and November 2016. After they split up, Abel dated Selena Gomez between January and October 2017. The Weeknd and Hadid then reconciled before breaking up again in late 2019. During the third verse, he appears to reference their two attempts at dating as well as his relationship with Gomez. <i>So, I made you think that I would always stay I said some things that I should never say Yeah, I broke your heart like someone did to mine And now you won't love me for a second time</i>
