In an Instagram post announcing the release date and Stapleton’s appearance, Pearce said,
“This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all felt at some point in a relationship. The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you’re also indifferent. I’ve always been a writer who never wanted to shy away from the “uncomfortable” moments in all of our lives, and this song feels too important not to share.”
Written by Carly, Shane McAnally and Pete Good, We Don’t Fight Anymore touches on feelings of apathy in a failing relationship. Pearce and Stapleton lament on the fact that they “don’t even fight anymore,” signaling that there’s simply nothing left in the relationship and it’s DAMN good. The chorus reads:
“We don’t yell ’cause what the hell difference would it make?
We don’t cuss and we don’t care enough to even hate
We could tear up the house, we could burn the whole thing down
But boy what for? ‘Cause we don’t even fight anymore”
