And with lyrics like this, it's no wonder that fans were instantly obsessed.

You set the bar above the moon, so...
I don't wanna be 20-something
and still in my head about
17 in my bedroom talking.
You said that by now we'd
Paint the walls of our shared apartment.
Still everything I want and
I think we can work it out,
so what are you doing now?

Though the original TikTok got plenty of likes, it didn't truly take off until Sadie's second upload of the snippet. That audio? It has 18.3k uses on TikTok!
