What breaks her heart the most is the fact that she has little to no idea why the relationship fell apart. “Beautiful, with room to grow,” is one of the explanations she got, which is close to useless in her healing process.
In the second verse, she does realize that she is not getting much closure no matter how hard she tries to search the darkest corners of her mind to find answers. She has one final hope, one we all rely on, time. Maybe some time away from everyone and everything can help her too.
