At some point in our lives, we will have all experienced a breakup, which is why this song is so relatable. 'Mathematics' cleverly takes its listeners through the, sometimes tedious, steps of the demise of a relationship.
In verse one, the listener gets to experience Amira's pain as she pleads with her boyfriend to understand that all she wants is to be by his side. In verse two, we listen as Amira has that "ah huh" moment. This is where she starts putting the pieces together and begins to realize that it’s time to let the relationship go. And, finally, in verse three, Amira officially cuts ties with her man. She stops placing all the blame on herself and starts putting it where it belongs.
With the use of some clever mathematical terms and Amira's powerfully soulful vocals the audience will be captivated by, both, Amira and 'Mathematics.'
