Liner Notes: 

Inspired by the old R Kelly song although this will be in a very different style. Am hoping one of you creative people can maybe suggest something for the ending as I'm not entirely happy with it;. Basically I want to blame the long term partner for my head turning by suggesting she had done the same thing previously to me. many thanks

Lyrics: 

My head is scrambled between the two
where do I start? what do I do?
in one hand I have a long history
excitement in the other and a little mystery

It's getting harder to live with these lies
as one flames burning bright, the other one dies
I have to ask myself, how and why
did I, come to live a double life?

can't shake the lust I have for her
who do I go for, who do I prefer?
in one hand I have a solid foundation
passion in the other and a little infatuation

It's getting harder to live with these lies
as one flames burning bright, the other one dies
I have to ask myself, how and why
did I, come to live a double life?

I don't want to continue in this way
it was never a game I wanted to play
but there must be a reason
there must be a reason
there must be a reason
there must be a reason

why I started living a lie
one flames burning bright and the other one's died
so I think I know the reason why
it's cause she was living a double life



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

I like your approach. The ending works for me. I'm not sure that you need to repeat "there must be a reason" because in my experience there usually isn't one. Smile Or maybe explore that more -" there must be a reason, or is it a change of season", or something like that? more searching for what it could be so that when we find out she was living the double life it feels more satisfying. - Just a suggestion.
