A few days before the performance, she called the song “a cry for help.”“I almost listen back and hear these lyrics as a cry for help,” she said during an interview with New Music Daily with Zane Lowe. “And you kind of listen back to it and you kind of think, ‘How did nobody listen to this song and think, ‘Let’s help this girl?’””I was recording it in a state of mind where I felt I was OK, but clearly I wasn’t,” Lovato added. “I even listen back to it and I’m like, ‘Gosh, I wish I could go back in time and help that version of myself.’”She told Lowe that after the overdose, she reevaluated her relationships and separated herself from the toxicity in her life. “You still have to make a decision every time, like, ‘Is this somebody I want around?’” she said. “If it’s not conducive to your journey that you want to be on, there’s no reason for them to be around.”
