What is the meaning behind the lyrics?

it’s about leaving and the repulsion to accept the same basically, the lyric talks about the initial numbness of someone leaving from your life(I do not particularly want to call it a break-up) and then the disbelief, denial of the same, It transitions into the chorus where it is a call not leave, not end things, the last two verses speak of solutions, a kind of resolution to plausible problems that would’ve pushed the one out of a relationship, it asks to sort the issue by burning the ego and looking beyond the lust(in this case just the desire for more and beyond what exists within).

What brings next after this release?

Working on several singles on similar subjects, I as an artist love to push a few values that I hold dear to my heart, such as Minimalism, simple human relations, freedom, equality, liberty, peace and sustainability. I believe strongly in love, for it to be the common element in all these values. and hence all my next releases will be to express these values in an aesthetic packaging of love and affection.
