Following this is “Unknown”, a track about the complexities of unrequited feelings and heartbreak. It transitions to “Baby, Cry”, a song for Auer’s father and an ode to those struggling to express their emotions. The EP closes with “I Feel Sad”, a sincere and simple track expressing the grief Auer felt after losing a close relative.

The transparency in Auer’s songwriting forms the heart of “Baby, Cry”.
