What is the theme of We Don't Fight Anymore?

The song basically describes a crumbling relationship between two people who experience emotional distress. The song has received critical acclaim following its release. The song has since reached the top 20 in the North American country charts.

Discussing the song in a statement, Pearce explained, “This song embodies a place that I think, if we are honest with ourselves, we’ve all felt at some point in a relationship. The distance that feels heartbreaking, yet you’re also indifferent. I’ve always been a writer who never wanted to shy away from the ‘uncomfortable’ moments in all of our lives, and this song feels too important not to share. Having Chris Stapleton join me on this song was a dream come true and he unlocked an element to the story that I didn’t even know it needed.
