Reason To Hate You by Rhys Lewis
"Reason to Hate You" is about struggling to get over someone. Moving on is never easy but it is much harder when there wasn't anything bad about the relationship, other than timing.
Bruises by Lewis Capaldi
The lyrics deftly deal with heartache and end of a long-term relationship.
He explains: "At times your memory of an old relationship will be clouded and you'll only seem to remember the best parts of being with someone. Completely ignoring the reasons why things came to an end makes the idea of holding on to it or wanting to go back to it seem more enticing than it actually is."
Can I Be Him by James Arthur
"Can I Be Him" describes Arthur's feelings towards someone who he loves, but they don't love him back, and how he wants to be the boyfriend that she's got now.
The track is a slow-tempo track, mainly supported by an acoustic backing track.
