“If Your Heart Ain’t In It” is a traditionally-infused song with heavy 90s country influences. The sound actually reminds me of Clay Walker’s, “She Won’t Be Lonely Long.” The story behind the song is, if you’re not in it for a deeper, genuine connection, then your insincerity will not pay off.
“If your heart ain’t in it, you ain’t got a chance with hers.” I think that line delivers the sentiment effectively.
“You, Me and the Mountains” is about the connection lovers gain when getting away to surround themselves with nature and the mountains. The song is about the longing of getting away somewhere a little more secluded to spend time together, interrupted by just the sound of the coyotes.
