Swiftly transitioning into the laid-back and Lo-Fi vibrations of “Closure”, the ascending star explores the motions of the relationship, as tempting as it may seem to want to spend one more night with her ex-lover before completely cutting ties, Ava Lily longed to find security in knowing he was alone so she didn’t feel like the only one that was suffering.
