Despite the title, the song is a celebration of a love story

This song is about falling in love with someone else. Sometimes, you realise that, in order for it to work, you got to learn to love yourself first.

I was deliberately ambiguous about why this love is off limits but it’s breaking the singer apart and they are about to risk everything. It could be a friend’s partner, or the boss’ daughter, or the boss, or a subordinate worker who’s off limits. Someone the singer has responsibility for and therefore should behave around.

This is a song about someone remembering a past love, specifically holding their hand, which is a concept that ends each verse. The final verse is bittersweet as it includes a realisation that this will probably never happen again.
NEW
This song is about a man who has lost in love and lost everything. He might be a vagrant, or just searching for meaning on a long journey.
