Story behind the song
I was in the middle of an ugly split and it seemed the only time we had to fight was just before I had to go to work. So I showed up late on the day I met the love of my life, and wrote this song for him a few months later. It began life as a troubadour-ish ballad and only recently did I realize how well it works as a dance track.
Lyrics
Winter was melting in the gutter So was my love of thirteen years I wasnt looking for another Id only barely dried my tears How could I know, explaining Some run-of-the-mill delay That love was a QUARTER TURN AWAY? Love was a QUARTER TURN AWAY You were a sweet appealing stranger You took one look and saw right through Through to a heart too much in danger But opening up to something new You made some clever comment But what did you really say? Love is a QUARTER TURN AWAY Love is a QUARTER TURN AWAY I played my set Thrilled by your glance Astonished at the thought Of a new romance You said you liked Everything that I play And the room around us Just fell away and Ill tell a world so broken-hearted Dont lose the courage to believe Think of the joy that hasnt started It may be tugging at your sleeve Keep your heart warm and ready Safe for that lucky daythat Love is a QUARTER TURN AWAY Love is a QUARTER TURN AWAY Love is a quarter turn You too may be surprised to learn That love is just a QUARTER TURN AWAY
