First Thoughts Review: 'If You Need Someone to Love You' by Mitchell Kersley





'If You Need Someone to Love You' is the brand new single from Mitchell Kersley. Out on August 14th, it’s taken from his debut EP ‘Dusk.


'If You Need Someone To Love You'  is a very modern sounding, mid tempo country pop song. A beautifully finger picked riff introduces the listener to this song alongside subtle, but very precisely played mouth organ. The song has minimal instrumentation for the verses giving them a stripped back feel. The percussion and guitars come in properly during the foot tapping choruses.


Mitchell Kersley has a warm toned voice. His diction is good which is always important when trying to convey the story behind a country song. This is a song about wanting to say to someone that you are there for them no matter what, as they might not necessarily know that already.


I am there to pick up the phone when you are lonely and I am there 'If You Need Someone To Love You'.


Very relatable storytelling as we have probably all been in this situation in our lives.


'If You Need Someone To Love You' is due for release this Friday 14th August on all major platforms but is already available to pre save/ pre order on iTunes/Apple Music and Google Store.

LYRICS


If you're tired of that same old, pretend to smile love,

The kind that makes you feel like you're not good enough,

If you're not familiar with the notion of being swept off your feet,

And you're missing the spark with each guy you meet

You may not understand the words I say, but believe me though

I'll put it all on the line, I just want you to know

If you need someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you need someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you're tired of being lonely, you can call me, you can call me,

If you're tired of being lonely you can call me,

Someone to love you

When they don't understand the shattered fragments of your heart,

And how to piece them together to stop you falling apart,

When you can't find someone, who will let go of your past,

See I don't care if I'm not the first as long as I'm your last

You may not understand the words I say, but believe me though

I'll put it all on the line, I just want you to know

If you need someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you need someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you're tired of being lonely, you can call me, you can call me,

If you're tired of being lonely you can call me, you can call me,

If you’re tired of being lonely, you can call me, you can call me,

If you’re tired of being lonely, you can call me, you can call me

Someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you need someone to love you,

I'll be right there if you want me to,

If you're tired of being lonely, you can call me, you can call me,

If you're tired of being lonely you can call me,

Someone to love you,

Someone to love you
