Kim about 'You'll Be the one Who'll Lose'

This song describes how it feels to fall in love with the idea of falling in love. The atmospheric and reflective music dictated the subject matter, and once again a song came along to help ease the pain of growing up in public. (1)

I know what it's like to have a broken heart. Luckily not too much, but enough to know what it feels like for somebody else. I wrote a song called You'll Be the One Who'll Lose [on her Close album] about a relationship that went nowhere with somebody that I cared about very much at the time. That song perfectly describes that situation. For me, songwriting has been a great therapy and a great way of working out the heartache of life. (2)
