Sam Smith has been pretty open about the inspiration behind “Love Me More,” explaining that the mid-tempo track has quite the personal meaning. “I wrote this song for anyone who feels different, anyone who has to stop themselves every day from saying unkind things to themselves, in their head, all the time. I felt like that for the longest time and slowly I’m learning how to just be nice to myself,” Smith explained of the hit, per Billboard. “I wanted to share that because I captured it in this song. Over the last two years, music has been my therapy more than ever. So I hope this song can be your friend.”

In an Instagram video showing Smith discussing the track, they explained that the song is about “trying” not to let words hurt them anymore, admitting that they “liked” that it wasn’t about saying they were “over it,” but about working through it all. “You’re saying ‘I’m trying’ and that’s… powerful,” they admitted. In another video shared to Instagram showing a glimpse at the music video, the “Diamonds” singer told their followers, “It’s taken a lifetime to be able to express this type of joy and honesty in my music and I am so happy to have you all here with me.”
