WELL, thanks to Harry's Rolling Stone interview that came out yesterday, we get to know the real truth behind the fantastic song, and boy, it's dark.
"The song was written from a point of view as if a mother was giving birth to a child and there's a complication. The mother is told, 'The child is fine, but you're not going to make it.' The mother has five minutes to tell the child, 'Go forth and conquer.'"
UGH, HARRY, why you gotta hit us in the feels like that?!
Listening to the song with this on the brain gives it a whole new perspective, and total appreciation of Harry's creativity.
Daddy Harry making us wanna call our mothers. Bless his soul.
