Liner Notes: 

Hard to get back in the game, whew.
This one took some time to come out... glad to be done, moving onnn.

Lyrics: 

We made a deal, the pact is sealed, what’s done is done
All doubts and fears, stuffed in my drawer, a loaded gun
So soft and sweet, an easy task to let her in
If I had known all the confusion one could bring

Jealousy, jealousy, I fear that it has won
Not just a fleeting feeling it is something I’ve become
Jealousy, jealousy, I fear it has won
While keeping it together it has made me come undone

Two halves of a whole walk side by side, an easy stride
But it’s so hard to keep your head always aligned
If all the freedoms that we grant are not enough
You’ll find me lonesome with too many hands too touch

Jealousy, jealousy, I fear that it has won
Not just a fleeting feeling it is something I’ve become
Jealousy, jealousy, keep stringing it along
Not just a passing glance at three, where one doesn’t belong



Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

Holy crap! (as Americans sometimes say) this is brilliant. One piano and one voice and so much musicality and emotion. What a story the lyrics tell, its a movie or short story all in four verses. You want to know what happens next. 'Two halves of a whole walk side by side, an easy stride' is a really good piece of writing. Great work.

I so love your vocal style, which really shines against the sparse piano in this track. Evocative and a little dark, this is absolutely what jealousy sounds like.

I love the piano and your delivery. "Not just a fleeting feeling it is something I’ve become" is such a great line, gives me goosebumps. This is great!

quite intriguing. Like something from quite a dark musical, in a way.

Calum has just played this on his radio show, and I'm entranced. So I've come over here and played it again, twice. That chorus in particular is sublime. Your willingness to include silence as a compositional tool - to just pause and let the listener reflect on what's happening - works brilliantly. That approach means that the vocals are going to come under particularly intense scrutiny, but you've no problems there at all. This absolutely shines. One of the best songs I've heard in a long time, and not just on Fifty/Ninety.
