For all of the followers of Melanie Martinez, you should know that she uses songs to get points across. Not all of her songs are about love. But this one happens to be about her emotions. I interpreted that she is upset about trusting a boy and sharing something that she might have not wanted to share. She says in the song, "God I wish I never spoke, now I gotta wash my mouth out with soap." This is saying that she wishes that she could go back and change what she did and clean out her mouth and rid the bad judgement of who she was telling all of he information to. I hope this helps!
