Jackson admits to missing his ex but also knowing that the relationship is over as he remarked to The Fader:
“In the song, I reflect on that relationship, the good and the bad with the understanding that the better days of the relationship were in the past. Once I took the chance to leave home and chase my dreams in a real way, I got a new perspective on the entire situation. The truth is I was deeply in love but I wanted more. I chose to create my own path in life but I was and still am sometimes haunted by the ghost of that relationship.”
Jackson currently resides in Los Angeles and is getting ready for the release of his debut EP, Don’t Be Afraid on May 26th.
