JB recently revealed his inspiration behind “You Are”. “The lyrics talks about how that person being in my life has become the reason for my existence. The words can be interpreted in a lot of different ways. It could be about us and our fans, us and our parents, or two people in a relationship,” he said.
He also revealed that the song’s original title was “Beautiful Sky” because the lyrics are about a person who hopes that their loved one will be the path that guides them and how looking up at the sky when one is tired and weary will bring comforting feeling.
