The painful loss has reflected in the work, it took a whole year to write the lyrics to the song. Literally “suffered” creative work immediately became the hallmark of the group.

The lyrics and music of the song seem to appeal to all living people – to take care of relatives and loved ones, to appreciate the opportunity to talk with them, and to spend every minute of life next to loved ones. After all, no one insured against losses, it is worth to enjoy the opportunity to live and breathe here and now, and then even this may not become, as if the “red thread”, it was the message of the song.

The words of the song touched Russian President Vladimir Putin, while sitting among other listeners in the hall, Vladimir Vladimirovich could not restrain his tears.
