Singer/Songwriter and producer Matt Nation Matt Nation's narrative for “Rose Gold” was introspection on a relationship that describes love but acknowledges that it isn't. "Rose Gold" is about a guy is telling a girl that although he does appreciate her company, he can’t fully give her the level intimacy that she wants from him. He can’t give her true love, although he and her do make what they have feel like love within that moment. But this, like fools gold, isn’t real, it’s Rose Gold. Excerpt from "Rose Gold"

"Drape my heart in Rosegold Time moving in slow mo If ya leaving don’t let go Just drape my heart in Rosegold Time moving in slow mo If ya leaving don’t let go

I could tell you what you want Rather give you what you need I can see you been alone But that won’t feel too different with me "
