This is probably the most upbeat song on the EP. I wanted to challenge myself and write something different. I wrote Criminal from a friends perspective, regarding the highs and lows of her relationship with her boyfriend.
I can never fully explain this song as it is probably the most complex on the EP but also very simple. If you want the full story, you have to take me out for a coffee.
Funny Kid -
Funny Kid is about a little crush that came and went. I wrote the first verse and chorus during the winter and finished it up a few months later. The second verse was written about a different relationship but still fits under the topic of thinking about someone who most likely isn't thinking of you.
Holding On -
Holding On was one of the first songs I ever wrote that described exactly how I was feeling at the time. I hit a rough spot for a little bit and was tired of everyone telling me to "stay strong." I remember sitting on my bedroom floor with a notebook propped on top of a stool. I started writing and later grabbed my guitar to add music. This song helped me get through a lot.
