The virtual world kicked in and Caleb found ways to keep everyone calm and hopeful. The song’s lyrics provided comfort and reassurance at a time people’s lives were in an unknown place. The song’s poignant message was universal to all the world…” It’s gonna be OK. Always remember, you’re not alone, your friends are here, you must be strong, you’re not alone.”
Caleb's vision for the song naturally came together...”I started writing this song back in May 2020 when I began missing my friends and the way my life used to be. Music always makes me feel better, so I figured this song would make others feel happy, too. As I began singing it for people, I was amazed at how many interpretations people had, from friendships to mental illness to spiritual, it shines a little light on everyone. I just want people to feel happy again because we are strong.”
