Ross Alan comments on the track, “I always felt out of place growing up. When I was 18, I moved away from Ohio and my family for the first time. Going to college 800 miles away, my first quarter ended for winter break and everyone complained about how they were ‘Homesick’. I realised I wasn't and I had never missed Ohio because it never felt like home. How do you navigate life as you blossom into an adult when you don't know what home is? That's what the song is about.”
