In “Pure Love” Hayley looks into her vulnerable side and lets herself know that if she wants to be loved she must open up while at the time finding someone who treats her well. The track sees her willing to get back into the world of love despite all the troubles she detailed on previous tracks such as “Dead Horse”.
"This has so much to do with me overcoming my fear of intimacy and learning new ways to connect with someone, trying so hard to let myself experience discomfort as a human being in order to grow. I didn’t ever mind the lyrics to the third part of the album coming across as innuendo. I was very happy to have that. So “getting experimental” in a relationship—people can take that sexually if they would like to, but I really see it as: I’ve never tried having a healthy relationship before in my whole entire damn life. It’s time for me to try what it feels like to communicate on a real adult level."
