When I'm Walkin': foolish and 19, i hitched down to surprise my girlfriend at a convention in el paso. found her with someone else. sure did enjoy the trip there, though. the wide open spaces of the southwest blew me away. thinking about it and wrote this song. the way home was a different story.
Take My Hand: Take My Hand
Take my hand my friend,
I wish to help you along.
Just knowing there are two of us
Can help to make you strong.
I know life seems unfair
and sometimes gets you down,
But know that I am here for you
I'll always be around.
So set a day aside
And together we will walk
Down all your troubled pathways,
For it helps sometimes to talk.
If you should need some time
To do this on your own,
Then I will be here waiting
Since you wish to be alone.
I guess I want to say
That I hold your friendship dear.
And if you ever need me
just reach out, cause I am here.
Seems Like Heaven: Russ Deane sure can compose a beautiful melody. i heard his instrumental of this song and asked if i could try and match some lyrics to it. he redid the arrangement for me and also performs all of the instrumental parts.thanks Russ!
