To me, the song seemed like the story of a relationship and how the narrator struggles to deal with his conscious regarding the relationship. With time as the affection between the couple faded, the narrator was still playing the role of a perfect lover to please her partner and the judgemental society. But one day the dreamer inside him wins him over and decides not to fake it anymore, and as a result, the relationship goes in a downward spiral and the people label him as the traitor of their relationship. At the beginning of the relationship, all he wanted is to be true to his lover. But as he becomes older, he realizes it is himself to whom he should be true to.
