"When you have a crush on somebody, and you think that they understand that ,but you’re not sure..
And you’re dropping all kinds of hints, and you think that they’re responding to these hints ,but you’re not sure..
Thinking that you’ve gone too far, you’ve dropped a hint that is just the size of Idaho, and they responded in a way that maybe confused you..
Or they haven’t responded at all ..
Or they responded in a way that seemed like ‘well, maybe I’m gonna- maybe I’m- maybe something’s gonna happen here!’..
And the phrase ‘losing my religion’ is a southern phrase which means that something has pushed you so far that you would lose your faith over it.
Something has pushed you to the nth degree, and that’s what this is about."
