Inspired by her experiences with anxiety and depression, Clairo penned “Just For Today,” referencing the night she joined the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline’s chat room. This isn’t the first time Clairo has sung candidly about her mental health, discussing suicide in her August 2019 track “Alewife.”
On January 25, 2021, Clairo shared an acoustic snippet of the track to Instagram, telling fans she had written it the night before. In her July 2021 interview for Rolling Stone, Clairo revealed that “Just For Today” wasn’t initially on her album Sling, but was added after she read the feedback from fans:
It was a kind of response I had never really seen.
Honestly, I didn’t think I’d end up here this time
Or anywhere at all, I’m distant just enough to never fall behind
Picturing the saddest scene of wearing bedsheets
And two pats on the back, “It just takes time”
It’s getting late
Since when did taking time take all my life? Mm-mm
Mommy, I’m afraid I’ve been talking to the hotline again
It’s stirring, but the ripples always seek out the ones who carry me, me
I blocked out the month of February for support
At least I have this year, I won’t bе worrying anyone on tour, mm-mm
As we speak, I’m hеre to meet devils for tea
Peering ’round the corner of my life
I throw my drink into the faces of my demise, mm-mm
At thirty, your honey’s gonna ask you, “What the hell is wrong with me?”
And finally, an answer from your throat comes crawling
And you can proceed
