Asked by Billboard
why he believes the song has proved so successful, Shaw replied:
"I think it's a tune that's broad enough so that people can attribute their own meaning and I think that's what art is about. I know exactly what the inspiration was and I think that when you have an idea and a piece that that speaks in a broader sense and you can have all of these different avenues, I think that's when something really, really connects. We are all different people; we have come from all different walks of life and have different experiences. But, when you can hone in on this one thing that everyone can have a unique experience and connection to, that's where the fire is."
