The simplicity of "The Way I Am" is profoundly heavy. Haley has crafted an indie-pop dream with contemporary beats and synths. Vos's soft vocals intertwined with Haley's emotes self-awareness and a gentleness. There's something awe-inspring about the fragility and vulnerability of the track.
“When I heard Gavin’s song I immediately connected to it,” Ella Vos writes of the collaboration. "I've been someone who’s definitely not been vulnerable enough in relationships and have many times found myself saying 'sorry for the way I am.' I love the lyrics and I love how our voices sound together.” Gavin echoed a similar sentiment, explaining that the duo were able to "relate a lot outside of music," which made writing process a seamless experience. "I love when people are pushing to be the best versions of themselves," he writes, "and Ella is a perfect example."
