Hood states, ‘not them’ is about the thoughts you have after a breakup and what you wish you could have done differently. You know where you could have improved to maybe make the relationship work, but the damage is already done and you know it will never be the same. No matter what you say or what you do, you will never get back to what it felt like at the beginning.”
