This lyric is another mind meld mash-up incorporating the strongly imprinted album cover for Bob Dylan’s Highway 61 Revisited, Bruce’s and my love of walking slowly side by side out of the way of the crowd, our collective human indulgence in wondering what if, and the never ending quest to be truly seen by those we love.

I like the forward movement of the man in this song towards the woman. Romance, when it is intentional, has no less magic than when it is unexpected. The heart is ever a mystery of surprises.

I am hoping this song will call all lovers to some slow dancing and serious romancing. Because we can all us a little of that. CJ


Oh, my sweet one,
I’m talking to you,
Come on let’s take a little stroll,
Let’s amble round the corner, babe,
And leave behind the rock and roll.

I’ve got words,
I’d like to whisper,
Words I’ve been saving just for you,
Seems like ages since we wandered
Arm in arm alone, just we two.

Would you like to hear some stories
About the way things might have been,
Or tales of how they might yet come to be?
I won’t take my eyes off you baby,
Just smooth talk you all night long,
I’m so hoping that you’ll spend this time with me.

Hip to hip,
Walking slowly,
I’m not rushing you through the night.
There’s nothing on in the morning,
So let’s take our time and get it right.
