Do you remember the songs that spoke to you when you were young? The ones that inspired you to seek and find love. When I was in high school, I thought I had found my forever love—the one and only girl that knew me for who I was. We explored that love parked in the dark, in the mountains, overlooking the city lights of Denver, Colorado. On these nights always with the radio turned down low.
Radio Turned Down Low
So many years have passed, so long ago,
When she and I had the radio turned down low.
In the dark was when our secrets were always shared,
Being in each other’s arms – was all we ever cared.
She was the queen of my night—I was her King,
Sensual exploring kisses, we wondered what it would bring.
Travolta & Johns “You’re The One That I Want” helped us pretend,
As we swore the radio turned down low would never end,
Our songs brought the fever, our desire started out slow.
Loving each other with the radio turned down ever so low.
Parked in our hidden mountain, but amorous getaways,
The songs of our youth began the wildfire—the blaze.
Looking back there was beauty to the radio turned down low,
Eagles, Andy Gibb, Cat Stevens that set our hearts aglow.
We thought the songs, our love, would last forever,
Innocent and young, we didn’t know about the, however.
Radio turned down low, how I miss those early sheltered days.
When the songs on the radio fired my heart and set it a blazed.
Wish I didn’t know now what I didn’t know then,
Only if we could have stayed young as we were way back when.
The songs and the love feels just like yesterday,
Feelings of being loved and loving will never fade away.
