Mutual

Liner Notes

One of the rhythm lines in the chorus definitely needs some tightening up, but I'm behind on my 50 so please bear with me.

I pictured this song as a jazzy/doowop feel, with some chucking on guitar, a tambourine, and some background vocals singing "doo".

Thanks for listening :)

Lyrics

I got here early for once
A cocktail to slow down the rush
Do you know which songs you inspired?
Do we agree on all that transpired?

[Chorus]
Tell me it’s mutual
Tell me you’ve opened your eyes
You see it, we wouldn’t survive
Can it be mutual?
Don’t wanna tear it down all on my own.
Tell me it’s something you’ve known.
Tell me it’s mutual

Will we always be each other’s
Forbidden fruit?
We’ve had a taste, it led to no good.
It led to no good, so...

[Chorus]
Tell me it’s mutual
Tell me you’ve opened your eyes
You see it, we wouldn’t survive
Can it be mutual?
Don’t wanna tear it down all on my own.
Tell me it’s something you’ve known.
Tell me it’s mutual

Great great vocals with that delicious vibrato. Relationships can be so difficult and you convey it beautifully.

Lovely vocals… mutual? Wishful thinking - lol!

Fantastic vocals. This is a sweet, sad song, and your voice and the uke pair so nicely together with the lyrics. Really enjoyed the listen. Great job!

Your vocals are absolutely dreamy, and the chorus had me enchanted. Oh, the ups and downs of being in a relationship. It's familiar territory, but your approach was a sweet, musical find!
