Meaning

Commenting about Away, Starr says she made the song while feeling sad.

"I free styled half of 'Away' at a time I was feeling down. It was like therapy. Singing the song out loud was like freeing myself from my burden. 'Away' is not just a heartbreak song, it's a song that empowers you to stand up to that thing or person that is causing you sadness."
