Jorrit: “In the foreword of the album, Eyes Closed represents an internal journey, a search for who we are. Finding Out More was almost an ‘accident’. Marijn and I quickly made something once and that was picked up.
1 Back In The Water
Marijn: “Back In The Water is about a situation in which the person with whom you have a relationship does not feel right. She is, as it were, under water, you can not reach her. But you also know that if you keep waiting, it will be fine. You just have to let her go. ”
Jorrit: “Yes, it is actually about conflict within intimacy. That you are close to someone, but still can not share that intimacy. You express your loyalty and allow yourself to give the other person time to get out again. ”
2 bright lights
Bright Lights is about deep inside knowing that it will be fine, but still have to spend some time before it is that far. You see the light at the end of the tunnel and you say that to yourself.
3 Mind Games
The theme of Mind Games is also recognizable, we have noticed. It’s about getting to know someone who genuinely likes you, but that other person is only interested in your attention.If you kick the gas, she kicks on the brakes. And when you hit the brakes, she kicks on the gas again. That will always remain the same, that distance will always be the same. And if you do not hear from you and you get a text message again at night three months later, you’ll be back to square one.
4 Where The Heart
Where The Heart Is is about chasing your dreams, following your heart. In this song people often understand that we mean this. I think that is also due to the combination of the words and the music. You just feel with this music that you jump into the deep!
5 Finding Out More
Finding Out More is about the question ‘What if?’ That can be about everything; What if I were single? Or what if I would have a relationship for a very long time? What if I canceled my job? Or had not that done that? What if I had stayed in Australia when I was traveling there? You will always doubt whether you have made the right decision.
Marijn: “Fortitude has something powerful and is about believing that things are going well. Believe in love. ”
Jorrit: “But it is also about doubt. It’s aboutfighting spirit for something. Is that worth fighting for?”
