Critical Reception

David Rishty of Billboard called the song an "eye-popping collaboration", and felt it "has all the right ingredients for its lyrics to quickly get stuck in your head". Kat Bein of the same publication deemed it "a feel-good breakup song with pop and country crossover". He opined that it "drips with tropical coconut notes with central vocals from Steinfeld and a strong backup from Florida Georgia Line", and sounds similar to Kygo's 2016 song "Carry Me" Brittany Provost of EDMTunes called it "a surprisingly very catchy and upbeat track".

Lyrics

Hailee:
You made plans and I, I made problems
We were sleeping back to back
We know this thing wasn't built to last
Good on paper, picture perfect
Chased the high too far, too fast
Picket white fence, but we paint it black

Ooh, and I wished you had hurt me harder than I hurt you
Ooh, and I wish you wouldn't wait for me but you always do
I've been hoping somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
Somebody's taking care of all of the mess I've made
Someone you don't have to change
I've been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go
Someone will love you, let me go
I've been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go

Florida Georgia Line:
It's been some time, but this time ain't even
I can leave it in the past but you're holding on to what you never had
It's good on paper, picture perfect
Chased the high too far, too fast
Picket white fence, but we paint it black

Hailee:
Ooh, and I wished you had hurt me harder than I hurt you
Ooh, and I wish you would have waited for me but you always do

I've been hoping somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
Somebody's taking care of all of the mess I've made
Someone you don't have to change
I've been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go
Someone will love you, let me go
I've been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go (go, go, go)
Someone will love you, let me go (go, go, go)
Someone will love you, let me go (go, go, go)
Someone will love you, let me go (go, go, go)
Someone will love you, let me go

I've been hoping somebody loves you in the ways I couldn't
Somebody's taking care of all of the mess I've made
Someone you don't have to change
I've been hoping
Someone will love you, let me go
