“In the context of the record, “Just Thought You Should Know” is probably the happiest song on the EP. In earlier versions of the lyrics, it was a lot darker. It’s a song about being vulnerable with someone. Those feelings may not be reciprocated, but at least you have said what you needed to say. As the kids say, “shoot your shot.””
