Entitled "Think of Me" the downtempo tune features intricate guitars, colorful trip-hop infused beats and a climatic chorus that just screams emotional release. Thematically "Think of Me" is about adoration for someone who isn't the right fit. Rivas confides, "A lot of us have been in a place where we realize we’re late in communicating or we just avoid it all together because it’s uncomfortable. Most of the time, infatuation is pretty unhealthy and I don’t think most of us ever want to admit out loud that we’ve been infatuated with someone."
