"Make It Real" features an encouraging and motivational message of taking life by the horns and realizing your hopes and dreams. Played on BBC1 on vocalist/pianist Laila Biali's radio show, the tune serves to brighten your day and give you the kick needed to start working on your dreams!

"Shape Your Light" is a love letter, informed by Maria's experiences as a teacher, woman, and caregiver, and by Shane's experience as a loving uncle.

"Echoes" is a reminiscent promise to hold dear the memories of those passed, specifically inspired by Maria's late grandmother in her final years.
