In addition to this Sheldon Riley, share some more details about his song.  In an interview with the Sydney Morning Herald he stated:

It was actually never supposed to be a Eurovision song; it was more a reflection on me and how far I’ve come and what I’ve learnt about myself,” “It’s reflective of not being the same as everybody else. Most Eurovision songs are very big, and they’re for everyone, but this one … you really get invited into a one-on-one conversation. It’s very personal.”
