According to the Rose Colored Glasses Songfacts, the song's lyrics echo real life situations that Rowland had been in, where she felt like she needed to leave. The singer said in a video interview that the first time she heard the song it made her think of all of the relationships where she had to wear rose colored glasses. Then when recording the song, with songwriter Ester Dean in the studio, she began to cry as the thought of all the "toxic relationships" that she had been in. .
