The lyrics of the song revolved around a breakup. In the clip posted on Instagram, the 29-year-old musician can be heard singing, “When you think of me / Are you setting fire to every memory? / Do you believe what doesn’t last forever don’t mean anything?”
Saxe continued, “‘Cause I swear I loved you fully / And I’m sorry not for staying who we thought I’d be. When you think of me, am I just another man who leaves?”
Julia posted a series of lyrics that seemed like a reply to JP Saxe
As per a fan’s screenshot in a TikTok video, Julia put out a series of lyrics that appear like a response to JP Saxe on her Instagram Story the very next day.
The Issues singer wrote, “You’re just another man / And this is just another doorway / Using promises like they’re some kind of twisted fore play. You keep saying that you’re staying / When we both know that’s not your forte.”
Michaels continued, “Cut to: you give me one last kiss / And leave your keys there in the foyer / And say you’re sorry / You never meant to hurt me like you do / Well I’m sorry to me too. For all the love I wasted on you / Baby I’m sorry to me / Sorry to me too.”
JP Saxe posted the second verse of his new song on his Instagram feed
Soon afterward, JP Saxe shared the second verse of his new song, When You Think Of Me, on Instagram. He wrote, “I hate myself for hurting you / but it would make it worse to fix it / I wish I’d figured out a way / of keeping myself in it.”
Saxe further added, “I hate how I lived up to / your worst fears / makes it worse / how it worked / so well for three years / and it could all be for the best in the end / but for now it feels like losing my best friend.”
Recently, Julia shared a video of herself singing a song featuring the previously shared “I’m sorry to me too” lyrics

In the track, the What a Time singer sang the lyrics, “The night we broke up, you called everyone saying it was my idea / So I’ll put on a necktie for your composition / Of ‘woe is me’ lines and all your omissions / Oh, this could be like our new tradition / Where I play the bad guy and you play / The victim.”
