"'Focus' is about depression and how it can creep up to you without noticing. In particular this song is about me coming to realize I'm in the grip of depression, resulting in feeling overshadowed by a darkness that takes away both my energy and joy in doing things, even the things I love to do, which leaves a metaphorical hole in me. I try to tell myself that I'm doing fine, but I'm not. While being in the grip of depression I also acknowledge that I will overcome it, and that I'm making progress. Though to truly embody this progress, I need to take my time", says Daimy. "The message of the song is that you shouldn't deny you could or are suffering from mental health issue(s). Face your demons and allow yourself to take as much time as you need to heal. Your mental health matters!"

Story-wise, it's inspired by the time I sat down for a meal with my ex-girlfriend after we'd broken up – we spoke about being with other people whilst not being together – and in this instance, I really didn't wanna know. At its core, it's another sad-boy heartbreak song. I really love it, and I had a lot of fun producing that epic ending too".
