So what does Bieber say about the song? He told Vogue
he wrote it in order to comfort those who have lost loved ones during the COVID pandemic or been separated from them because of the lockdown.
The song is about "losing somebody you love," Bieber said. "And I know a lot of people have. I know this has been a really challenging year where we've lost loved ones and relationships too. The hook is saying, 'If I can't get close to you, I'll settle for the ghost of you.' That works for this quarantine situation. We're not relating and connecting in the same way. It has allowed us to only really have these memories."
