This collab has been on ARMYs minds ever since it was announced back in January, and now Lauv and BTS’ “Who” lyrics and meaning are finally here. Lauv, whose real name is Ari Staprans Leff, tapped BTS members Jungkook and Jimin to feature on this song off his debut full-length album, How I’m Feeling, out Friday, March 6. Fans of the American songwriter and Korean all-stars alike are already impressed.

The teetering track starts off with Lauv featuring heavily on the first verse and chorus. But things take a turn for the introspective as Kookie takes the helm. “Cause you’re not the girl, I fell in love with,” he sings, his voice equal parts whisper and Autotune.

It gives the emotional message of the track a cooler sense. “Who” is at once a song about heartbreak and acceptance, one where you realize the person you fell in love with has changed, and is no longer “who” you fell in love with at all.

Lauv opened up about this in a Q&A in Feb. 2020, where he revealed that the track is actually “one of [his] favorite songs” off the album. Read on for the lyrics, below, to understand why for yourself.

Verse 1: Lauv

Our minds are new, rising visions of you
Girl I think I need a minute
To figure out what is, what isn’t
These choices and voices, they’re all in my head
Sometimes you make me feel crazy
Sometimes I start to think you hate me like, yeah
