“ ‘If’ is about a relationship … or rather, a ‘non-relationship’ I had with a guy right after I broke up with my ex of 3 years. Things were long distance, so it kept getting more and more confusing. Great when we were together but then absolutely mystifying when we weren’t. Everything was so cloudy and indistinct… I couldn’t handle it. The song expresses exactly how I felt. I wasn’t gonna wait around anymore for a guy or any situation that wasn’t ever gonna be what I wanted”.
