The lyrics show just how much Taeyang grieved for his girlfriend and fellow band mate, GDRAGON, confirmed just that “when Min Hyo Rin and Taeyang had broken up for a short period of time, he went around looking like he had lost the whole world. He spent the days sighing and sulking. On days Taeyang spent gloomy and distressed, with no need to ask, I knew, ‘ah, something happened between him and Hyo Rin.'” — BIGBANG G-Dragon


When the song was initially released, Taeyang had shared that it was based on one of his actual relationships. Without revealing much information about who the song was about, he stated, “the lyrics came from the grief of a broken heart and missing the one I love.”
