There is very light percussion, with a faded kick drum coming in at the chorus. Towards the end of the track, there is a contribution of strings, adding to the elegant nature of the track. The sound on this track earns a 7/10 on the Intersect Rating Scale.
This track details the deep devotion that Lana has for her lover. She uses religious metaphors to express the perfection that would come with the relationship, singing, “Say yes to heaven, say yes to me”. Here, she guarantees that her love and devotion will be a heavenly experience. Although Lana appears so devoted, this relationship seems to have its ups and down, as she also sings, “If you go, I'll stay, You come back, I'll be right here.” Lana has to fight for this love, but it proves to be rewarding due to her persistence. She earns an 8/10 on the Intersect Rating Scale for her lyrics.
