As a new composition, "1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back" finds the intimacy of a voice note, complete with bird noises in the background, as Rodrigo questions her love’s motivations as much as she interrogates her own reasons for staying put.Listen to it when you're feeling: like you've been replaced.Key lyric: "So when you gonna tell her that we did that, too? It's also one of only two songs on which Rodrigo gets full writing credit.Listen to it when you're feeling: generous, but not too generous.Key lyric: "I hope you’re happy / But not like how you were with me"Here's the other sole Rodrigo composition, characterized by careful piano arpeggios and a waltzing rhythm that feels like sneaking through a house after everyone’s asleep. Like a lot of Sour, "Happier" is a monologue, one where she chooses her words extra carefully, though her moments of discontentment creep up in the clever production behind via muted claps, the kind that make it feel like maybe we’re not hearing the entire story.Listen to it when you're feeling: like you don’t deserve what you have.Key lyric: "All I see is what I should be / Happier, prettier, jealousy, jealousy"After a few songs without a proper backbeat, “Jealousy, Jealousy” pounds in like an elephant, letting Rodrigo work out some feelings of imposter syndrome over a real groove.
