In this deeply emotional ballad, Mitski explores the themes of love, mortality, and possession. She paints a picture of a person who feels they have nothing to claim in the world except their love. The lyrics convey a desire to immortalize this love by sending it up to the moon so that it will continue to shine down even after her death. This is not only an expression of her profound love but also an acknowledgement of its importance and value in her life. The song serves as a poignant reminder that while material possessions may come and go, the love one holds remains uniquely theirs forever.
