“I’ve had relationships where it gets to the point where both sides become vindictive towards each other by trying to make the other love them even if they can’t do so themselves. And all so that they can come out on top. To me, it’s just such a dark and twisted thing to do to someone who you once loved. To have it become a competition for the remainder of each other’s heart in the end, but it happens. With lyrics like ‘I need your love even though I won’t love again’, the song tries to capture that emotional conflict.” – august brodie stated

‘Playing For Keeps’ tells a bittersweet tale of a young guy who shares a volatile relationship with his significant other. Apparently, their union is at its end and shows a slim chance of returning to fruition. Furthermore, “Playing For Keeps” contains a relatable narrative, ear-welcoming vocals, and tuneful melodies. Also, the emotional tune possesses edgy instrumentation flavored with an alternative-rock aroma.

“I don’t think I’ll ever fall in love again.”
