“Co-writing, you don’t always know if you’re going to get with the person someone you can really trust to lay your deep secret stuff out there with,” said Carter.
“Sometimes you find out ‘Well, I’m not sure how safe or how much I want to lay bare.’ And I remember very well you started talking about that concept of a relationship that had not been working for the longest time,” added Esten.
“I wanted the love of my life to say this song to me,” shared Carter.
