If life is a movie

Oh you’re the best part”

  1. “Mutual Butterflies” by Ryan Trey

 “I mean if we speaking on facts I guess she’s something that I like

Or maybe date

Or maybe wife

Oh I’m trippin’

Did I admit that I’m slippin’ for a girl like you?

I guess I could try to

The only problem is you make me nervous

But then you told me that I make you nervous too

I guess that’s mutual butterflies” 

Ryan Trey is thinking about a girl he’s interested in, and he’s confirming that she is someone who he likes, might date or even marry. At first, he’s nervous because of the girl, but when she tells him that he makes her nervous he’s glad that the feeling is mutual. This verse confirms that you want your significant other in your future.
