The themes of self-worth continue into other tracks on the album, including "Think Outside The Boy." Written with Emily Shackleton, this delicately produced track warns young girls against putting boys in front of their dreams. This is another lived-and-learned song from Alaina, with the second verse dedicated to Alaina's own experiences in putting a boy before her ambitions. This song sounds a bit like an old-school Taylor Swift song, in the best way possible.
Out of the 12 tracks, "Three" and "Same Day Different Bottle" are the showstoppers. The former song attempts to explain the life of a musician. For those of us that aren't trying to make it big in music, it's almost impossible to understand why these artists will leave home and live on pennies to most likely not even make it. But Alaina captures that feeling in the bridge, "My words were sung by a three-year old, hairbrush for a microphone, little girl with a dream, and that girl was me." These types of song have been released on multiple records by multiple artists, but this is the best one yet. "Same Day Different Bottle," a co-write with Caitlyn Smith, tackles the subject of alcohol addiction, probably speaking of Alaina's fathers struggles with alcoholism. The song is simply produced, and fairly simply written, but the message is big and important.
