“Then Because She Goes” is the eighth track on The 1975’s 2020 studio album ‘Notes on a Conditional Form.’ This song is specifically a dreamy, romantic anthem by Matt Healy confessing his love to a girl.
The 1975 released their fourth studio album ‘Notes on a Conditional Form’ on May 22, 2020. Prior to the release of the album we saw several singles come out such as “Me & You Together Song,” “If You’re Too Shy (Let Me Know),” “The Birthday Party” and more. These gave an indication that this album is all about the human condition.
One of the shorter tracks on the album, the song finds Matt Healy drooling over his girlfriend, clinging to her, and cherishing her presence. It saddens him when she has to part.
Listen to “Then Because She Goes” by The 1975
The lyrics are overtaken with the term “I love you” from Matt Healy to his girl. From the moment he wakes up until he goes to bed at night, all he wants to do is entertain his eyes with the images of her–not pictures of her, but the actual person infront of him.
This same reason makes him sad when she has to leave in the morning-maybe for work? Because the time is half-past eight. Quite late for office probably. But Matty whispers “you wait for a bit.” And she probably melts inside, every time.
“You wait for a bit” is such a simple thing to say and not a frequented phrase in the world of romance. But these words are as powerful as any “I love you” or perhaps even more. This phrase reflects how much a person longs for the other’s company.
Matty also says that he breaks apart on the inside when she leaves.
