How I feel about it all: nostalgicwistful
Soundtrack: Cheryl Wheeler - Arrow
I wish I could fall in love,
though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does.
Still I'd fool myself and gladly just to feel I was
in love, in love.

I wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
and gaze into some gentle warm excited eyes,
and give myself as truly as an arrow flies
in windless skies.

Oh, I remember you in the TV light
holding you close to me where we lay,
and now I wish I knew some of those softer nights,
whispering quietly, feeling you turn to me.

It was only last night in the winter dark,
I dreamed of how you loved in all your innocence,
and I've never known a softer warmer feeling since
or a truer heart.

But maybe these dreams are leading me;
maybe love is not as gentle as my memory;
maybe time and wistful half-remembered fantasies
are the greatest part.

Oh, but I remember you in the TV light
holding you close to me where we lay,
and now I wish I knew some of those softer nights
whispering quietly, feeling you turn to me.

Wish I could feel my heartbeat rise
and gaze into some gentle warm excited eyes,
and give myself as truly as an arrow flies
in windless skies.

Oh, I wish I could fall in love
though it only leads to trouble, oh I know it does.
Still I'd fool myself and gladly just to feel I was
In love.

God. That is SUCH a great song...I like 'emotional response', too.

The woman is pure talent. She paints pictures with words that I can almost see with my eyes. "When Fall Comes To New England" is probably the best example.

That is one of my favorite songs on this earth.

Which I now must listen to.

Thank you. :)

Isn't it, though? *sigh* I think it was the first Cheryl Wheeler song I ever heard, and I've been a fan ever since. I've seen her in concert twice so far. I actually heard "If It Were Up to Me" for the first time at the last one. :)

I think it was the first song of hers I heard as well. I've been lucky enough to see her in concert more times than I can count... she plays around these parts often, and back in our major folk fest days, we'd sometimes end up seeing her once a week or so.

I'm not sure there's a voice out there I love as much as hers.
