This is a song about leaving behind familiar surroundings and friends to start a new life elsewhere. The speaker is sad about leaving and is counting every breath as they face the reality of saying goodbye. They are aware that things will never be the same again and that they will miss their friends. Despite this, they know they have to move on and face their new life with hope. The song ends with the speaker counting their breaths and not knowing when they will be back or how long their new life will last.
