ABOUT THIS SONG
Please refer to the narrative on the song, Take Me Home, for the back story. This is the second song I wrote for that artist who came and went way back in 94. The intimacy of the first song had fallen on deaf ears. She wanted something a little more peppy...so, I gave it to her. A bouncy little song that celebrated friendship, and spelled out the connection I thought we had. 

Well, we didn't...and this song had no more success that the previous one in meeting my intention to convince her to stay. Historically, such efforts are rarely met with success. And now, you can add me to that reliable statistic. I mean I tried...and know that we are winding on a journey with no end...so hello, hello my friend...wow, who could resist that one...Jamie could..and did.

I'm not really a begging man, nor am I typically desperate. This was a vulnerable time, and the post marriage tenderness I was getting for awhile was very special and very appreciated. But, be that as it may...I was left with a couple of decent songs that address moments of life, themes that wind in and out of the lives of us all at one time or another. Just thought you might want to see how I dealt with the whole thing musically...which is how I typically do it...returning to that consistent reliable inner mistress/muse that will always be there...and, yes, I know her very well...apparently she has some issues about being replaced...
 
SONG LYRICS:  HELLO, MY FRIEND
 
On the day I met you, Jamie
I heard a distant drum
A Fallish breeze blew Through my heart
I knew the change would come
There was something in your eyes
That said you’ll come to see yourself
All the games that had defined me
Were headed for the shelf
 
Just like a Summer’s day You warmed me up
You walked me to the dawn
Then stood aside released my hand
You pointed far beyond
To where the bear had Cleared the forest
The wolf was at the pass
White herons circled overhead
I felt a calm at last
 
    Now I can say I love you
    Now I can call you friend
    And know that we are winding
    On a journey with no end
    So hello, hello, my friend
 
You teach me of the boundaries
I teach you of the no
You teach me of consistency
I teach you love can grow
We’re a man and woman flowing
In an archetypal dance
A blending of the Muses
Approaching resonance
 
Now I can say I love you
Now I can call you friend
And know that we are winding
On a journey with no end
So hello, hello, my friend
