With lyrics like, "Just think of the future, and think of your dreams, you'll get away from here, you'll get away eventually" you can't help but feel motivated that all your hard work for the past four years WILL pay off.

A song Sivan wrote about being homesick while on tour. He talks about the need for a familiar touch, dealing with loneliness, and how to feel better. He sweetly sings, "Take me back to the basics and the simple life, tell me all of the things that make you feel at ease."

5. "Holding On To You" by Twenty One Pilots

"And I'll be holding on to you," are the echoing words you hear throughout this song. A half pop/rock tune about life in general. The ups and downs of thinking too much; "The next moment, before you know it, time is slowing, and it's frozen still, and the window sill looks really nice, right? You think twice about your life, It probably happens at night, right?" YES. YOU'RE EXACTLY RIGHT.
