[dropcap]“Bad”[dropcap] is the next song on Confessions of a Hopeless Romantic and addresses when a couple crosses physical boundaries, questioning if they should’ve done what they did. “Bad” comes before “Slippin’,” talking about the issues in a relationship that follows crossing physical boundaries. “We’re starting to argue a lot more. We’re starting to be really short with each other and irritated. We’re starting to not trust each other.”
TJ said that crossing physical boundaries is almost always a trigger for conflict in a relationship.
“That’s always where the tension starts because there’s a whole new level of intimacy that you’ve never experienced as a couple.”
“Somehow” talks about how for months after crossing physical boundaries, he and his girlfriend fight everyday. “We’re always at war with each other. We’re always fighting each other.”
The breakup is described in “Forget You” and it speaks about how after he and his girlfriend break up, he cannot forget about her. “Regardless of how hard I try, I can’t forget about you. You’ve left a lasting impression in my heart, soul, mind, and body. I’ll never be able to forget about you. I could try, but I can’t [forget].”
