Love Ain't Blind

if you could tell me, what's on your mind, darlin'

maybe I could be of some assistance...

they'll all try to sell you that old line about 

'love being blind', baby... we could prove that all nonsense...

...

I believe that love is... wide awake and hoping...

and it's staring us down with it's eyes wide open...

love ain't blind... love could see us through these times...

...

if I could hold you... slip into your dreams, darlin'

maybe I could make this all make sense...

no matter what they've told you;

love's not always what it seems, and I...

I'd like to say a few words in love's defence...

...

though I'm convinced... that love ain't blind...

love's under no obligation to be simple or kind...

no, love ain't blind... love will see us through these times...

...

if you could tell me... what's on your mind, baby...

maybe I could be of some assistance...

     ...well... this song dates back to the 'Bandanna!' days... it was a popular 'slow dance' number, and appears on the 'Seven Songs' recording, which was six tunes from a F.A.C.T.O.R. grant, produced by Prairie Oyster's Keith Glass at Andy Thompson's Northumberland Music Studio... the seventh song, 'Tell Me That You Love Me' on that effort, was from a CKPT 'Homegrown' radio contest, also recorded at Andy's. This is one of many 'love songs' that haven't had a whole lot of play in my world of late. Times and situations change; but a song is never just meant to just pertain to certain individuals and relationships,  I suppose.
