‘To Be The One You Choose’ is an emotional power ballad written from the perspective of the internal conflict between the head and the heart. Knowing you’ll never be good enough ‘I could never be enough, never quite keep up with wicked games’, but knowing you’re not strong enough to walk away ‘But still I crawl back’.
Naessens powerhouse vocals contrast with her delicate songwriting in the most vulnerable sense, she says “I wrote the song when I realised I was somebody’s second best and there was nothing I could do about it, except write a song”.
