The lyrics to “Back to Life,” composed by Josh Gudwin, Wayne Sermon, Michael Pollack, Kennedi Lykken, Jorgen Odegard and Hailee Steinfeld, are quite beautiful and resounding.
The pre-chorus of the song has Hailee questioning the meaning of life. What is the purpose of having a dream, if you are not grinding towards it? What does a heartbreak really mean to you, if you are not shedding a tear over it? What is the use of a sunset, if you are not riding into it with your lover?
In the chorus of the song, Hailee sings about reviving her lover. She has a feeling that he is gone forever–that he is not revivable. But she is going to keep on trying because how he made her feel is worth the struggle.
