I Found You: An upbeat pop song about having everything you can want in the world but it only matters now because you’ve found the person who makes it all make sense.

I am Yours: A ballad about being fully and completely one with someone. It has the makings of the perfect wedding song.
Spotlight [ft. Swoope and Andy Mineo]: An upbeat pop song featuring Christian rapper Andy Mineo about social media and how it makes us crazy chasing the high of constant attention.
First Time: My favorite song on the album because it explores the idea of a heartbreak but witnessed from the other person’s perspective.
Stay There: A song about the increasing shallowness of the hook-up with no commitment culture and how rare it is to find someone who stays.
Born For This: A song about believing in yourself even when you are faced with doubts.
Best of You: An acoustic song with country musicality about loving the good in someone no matter what.
Naive: The title track about seeing the good in everything no matter what backed by a soft acoustic musicality.
