"I was chilling with a couple friends of mine, one who was very wealthy. Living in a castle kind of wealthy. We went to her house and she gave us a tour. Everything looked super expensive and impressive- the furniture was luxurious and fancy, so it seemed odd when the sofas were covered with plastic.
When my friends and I were leaving the house, I said to them, 'why have such an expensive sofa if you cover it with cheap plastic? that's not what it's made for. Kind of a shame isn't it?'
Before she could say anything- I was like, well...why do we put walls up? That's not what our hearts are made for.
I cannot stress how quickly I drove home to write that song."
