    This song is about the person you love and sacrifice yourself, as if you don't exist to move on with your life by ignoring the love you give.This person even made him want to kill himself.He knows that person will come back to him one day but he says it won't matter to him.Abel says in this song that love and affection are not enough for the person he loves, that person prefers toxicity. In fact, Abel even tried to change for this person, but this caused his soul to be lost.This song is the deepest song Abel has ever made.

    its not just about a break up or a post break up relationship its about being in a relationship which is toxic enough to poison ur soul with a love which is full of shit is not real to u and u have given it so much of yours that u have even lost urselfyet u believe u still love that person and u cant leave them or live without them now its about u finding ur lost self and a self realisation that once this gets over and the faster u get out of this relationship the better it is and all trauma u had faced in this relationship wont matter when its time for u to be successful and deserve healthy love

    This is my favorite song. It has a beautiful sonic richness, sure. But what is so compelling about Tesfaye's story in these particular lyrics, is the brutal vulnerability and helplessness we fall into when our heart is broken. It could be described as falling into a dark hole, and you're just spiraling uncontrollingly as light gets further from where you are. The wailing symphony in the song are a symbol of desperation, and the short pulsations of melodies intensify the feeling of how naive you've been. It's an omen to wondering if you will ever escape this person's poisonous grasp on your emotions, and a poem to heartbreak.

    It was a pretty straightforward meaning where he said "when its time" it dont matter. When it ends it just ends. Post breakup with selena or bella either way it makes him feel as if was like he was gone.
