Jackson completely shared the thoughts of the fans. He said even then he would feel lonely when he came home after filming the podcast.

For the first time in his career, Jackson decided to share his life story without holding back. He said,

I always had an idea that I always wanted to shoot a music video for that inspired me for 5-6 years in a row. I’ve never talked about it, but every time I come home, I never turn off all the lights in the house. I always leave one on… if I’m abroad for months, I still leave one on because when I come home I always feel someone is waiting for me… every time I come home I feel like this light is waiting for me.

The singer was not afraid to share his struggles with so many people who constantly relied on him at work. He even had to look after his parents. When he came home, the light symbolized someone or something he could rely on for a change to comfort him.

Eric empathized with his friend, pointing out that being a celebrity that so many rely on looks glamorous on the surface, but there’s also tremendous pressure to work constantly and provide for them.
