It’s like taking a deep breathe and saying, ‘Here I am. Take me. Take your best shot’.” She went on to explain that: “The first thing that comes to my mind with I Don’t Believe You is me standing in the vocal booth listening… Actually in the control room listening to this song, tears running down my face, just like ‘fuck, really?’ It’s the vulnerable weak side of me that I don’t let out very often. And it’s [sighs], yeah it’s that song. And I love it, I love it. I just love it, it’s very near and dear to me.”
