Ana revealed the message of the song is about Love, and about never giving up. however, she also stated she doesn’t like to put her own meaning to a song, because she wants the listener to develop their own meaning and feelings of the song.

“I always use the words 'Amen' and 'Hallelujah' for the intuitive feeling that I have chosen the right path, which I emphasise with these two words. It’s an inner feeling. On the one hand, we have partners standing by our side, and on the other, each person is themselves. They manage so many worlds within themselves and what you feel is the best in yourself usually pays off.”
