In Their Words: “‘True for You’ is the piano-driven ballad of the album. Its about all roads leading to one point and one person, no matter how hard you try to deviate. I wrote this song while in the midst of trying to be good on my own, but realized that I couldn’t do that until I admitted my heart belonged to someone, at the time. And I kept getting pulled back into it. I love the way Thomas Hammerton plays the piano on this song and how it moves away from our other sounds a little. It has a warmth and feels perfect to end our album.” — Alanna Gurr
