“I don’t think I love you anymore” is about the freedom that comes with resurfacing after a heartbreak. That feeling of untethering from someone who consumed your thoughts and realizing how empowering it is to no longer need them. For years I found myself pining over someone that, I realized, I didn’t even really know anymore. The chasm I felt didn’t really exist, It was just the memory of an old love that kept me anchored until I was able to let go of it.
I wrote it like a journal entry and every lyric has specific personal significance to me. I wanted to be as honest as possible” - Julia Church
