how can you tell if you love her? by john myrtle

London based singer - songwriter John Myrtle is back with his latest track "How Can You Tell If You Love Her?". This track is all about the anxieties and self doubt that comes with the confusing unpredictable emotions that surround the heart. John says “I guess the song is about being sure of the relationship you’re in - you can never really be certain you’re doing the right thing, you’ve just got to trust yourself. It’s not like you can get a tape measure or complete a questionnaire to tell you if what you’re doing is right This was the first song I had written since I had moved to London. I remember feeling quite alone when writing it, and just really unsure about all the decisions I had made up until that point. I had just broken up with a long term girlfriend who I had partly moved to London to be with, and I had just begun seeing someone who told me she only wanted a casual type of thing going. I remember feeling like everyone I had known always seemed to doubt love in some way, and I wrote the lyrics to this song with that in mind. I was unsure of what the future held for me, and I felt like singing this song was quite cathartic, at least it screamed out that I wanted certainty in my life and answers!With John's beautifully written personal lyrics, John takes us inside his head, and describes to us about what he's feeling. "How Can You Tell If You Love Her?" is the track that really shows who John is as an artist.
