"I wrote 'As long as we're both breathing' as my modern take on the famous words 'till death do us part'. It's about the declaration of love – to stay together for better or worse. 'As long as we're both breathing' is a song that emphasizes the importance of communication and understanding as the keys to balance between love and hate in any close relation – two very different feelings that are often very close to each other on the emotional spectrum", mags explains.

About the track, siné says that "it was really meant to be the ultimate break-up song. But while I was going all girl power and feeling free, I was hit by the insecurity that always haunts you when you're trying to leave someone for good. And so instead, I ended up feeling totally miserable about myself. '2good2u' is about the inner fight that comes with not being able to stand up for your ridiculous self when life needs to change. It's a reminder that you are the one in your life who can make the chance to move forward from what might seem like a catch-22".
