Liner Notes: 

Lyrics by @coolparadiso, music by @Amanda Rose Riley.

Amanda: This is our third collab this 50/90, which is a definite record for me! Actually I think this is the first time I've even collabed with someone more than once. Thanks for another nice lyric! Always down for more. I still don't know why this year it is so easy for me to set a lyric to music, but so hard for me to finish my own songs, even though I am excited about my ideas and I used to write lyrics so easily. Who knows.

Lyrics: 

V1 The layers of my life just peel away
Safe protections they uncover
The self analysis continues
Im open to my lover

V2 Personal awakening and reality
It's time to share it all
Time to take a leap
All in or not at all

C Layer by layer
Piece by piece
As it gets smaller
It seems to increase

V3 Like an onion skin shrinking
I open up more each day
Otherwise it will never work
At all in anyway

V4 I get close to my being
As we get closer to one another
It all becomes transparent
Seems so much to discover

C Layer by layer
Piece by piece
As it gets smaller
It seems to increase

B openness is all it takes
To really set you free
If you must, try everything
But in the end you”ll see

Layer by layer
Piece by piece
As it gets smaller
It seems to increase

Layer by layer
Piece by piece
As it gets smaller
It seems to increase



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

This is the year I've come to appreciate @coolparadiso's lyrics.

Very nice interpretation, Amanda! Another great collaboration for you two.

The lyrics are so personal, guitar and vocal (and looking into the camera, too) just makes perfect sense. Poignant, vulnerable take on the lyrics. Super collab!
