In touching myself, laye sings about how she can’t stop thinking about her ex’s body and how they fit together while her current boyfriend is next to her. She admits that she’s “such a slut” for looking for more when she has enough, and that she knows better than to see her ex in person. She wonders, if it’s really a crime to imagine him in her head or if she’s tearing apart her whole world with her bare hands.

The song is a dark pop gem that showcases laye’s ability to craft catchy hooks and emotive lyrics that resonate with listeners. laye creates a contrast between the upbeat and infectious melody and the sombre, and remorseful tone of the song, making it a compelling and engaging listen. She also reveals a vulnerable and raw side of herself, exposing her inner struggle and self-doubt.

Touching myself is a song that will appeal to fans of artists like Billie Eilish, Lana Del Rey, and Halsey, who are known for their dark and edgy pop sound. It is also a song that will resonate with anyone who has ever experienced the dilemma of being torn between two lovers or the guilt of betraying someone’s trust.
