“Longer,” the second song on Broken Memories, expresses that wish to experience “forever” with that person. In the lyrics, Miller sings about, “If we done met when we were younger/ Would’ve had more time making memories.” “Longer” perfectly captures those feelings of wanting to spend one more moment with that person, as it hurts thinking that they aren’t around anymore.
The next song, “Here’s Your Perfect,” is a slow ballad depicting Miller moving on from the relationship. He states, “But you won’t see me break, call you up in three days/ Or send you a bouquet, saying, ‘It’s a mistake’.” Miller also did a duet with salem ilese for “Here’s Your Perfect”.
“I Lost Myself in Loving You,” the first single off Broken Memories, is one of the more heartfelt and emotional songs. Miller’s vocals take center stage as he exclaims in the chorus, “I lost myself in loving you, in loving you/ Became someone else I never knew, I never knew/ I was there when you needed saving/ But you wouldn’t do the same thing.”

The last song on the EP, “Over You,” explores the tumultuous timeline that comes with getting over a break up, serving as a great reminder that healing takes time. It describes the confusion of believing everything’s done and over with, just to be hit with a new wave of pain. Lyrics such as, “I hate that you still cross my mind/ Memories that we created/ By now I thought would have faded” emphasize this point. The chorus is Miller’s realization that healing doesn’t happen in a logical manner, “But I guess this is not how it works/ When you put somebody first.”
Overall, Broken Memories is the EP to put on this spring when feeling the gut-wrenching emotions of heartbreak. The track list showcases the ups and downs when dealing with a break up, emphasizing that it’s okay if healing doesn’t happen in a linear fashion, as it rarely ever does.
