Speaking about the track, Gemïny said: “After the heavier content of my two previous albums, with ‘Hesitation’, I used a lighter narration. This speaks to anyone who’s done crazy things for a crush (if not, keep it to yourself, that thought helps me sleep at night). This comes from when I had an unusual argument at a house party for a girl. I’m extremely proud, but there I was, a 12-hit freshman, smashing walls and smashing tables. A bad look overall, but it sums up the essence of hesitation. The youthful way to impress an elementary school crush; that contradictory mix of excitement and fear that stinks of the teenage spirit.
