The difference between lyrics in the first and the last chorus shows that as they change accordingly, from questioning what’s wrong to the realization and acceptance”. He started working on the project after he came back from a small trip to the US, in the summer of 2019.  The song was inspired from personal experience and he thinks and hopes that many listeners can relate to it.
