Song Description

How hearing a familiar song can take the listenere on a time journey. And sharing the joy that can bring.

Story Behind the Song

Hearing a busker in Chichester, England, sing a Joni Mitchell song took me straight back in time. By the end of the day I had the first verse, and it was written in full within a week.

Lyrics

SONG ON A CORNER
© 2018 by J. E. Ambrose

'Say I love you right out loud'
Sang the busker to the crowd.
We shared a smile as he looked my way:
Joni's children out to play

(chorus)
We believed in freedom, we believed in love.
We have tasted summer when the world was young.
Just a moment on a Tuesday afternoon,
One song on a corner
Brought a world back in view

Like a simple photograph
Links the present with the past
Time can turn on a single view,
And say: You know me and I know you

(chorus)
We believed in beauty, we could feel the art
Deep beneath the surface, deep within the heart
Just a moment on a Tuesday afternoon,
One song on a corner
Made a whole world brand new

(Bridge)
Now I am guilty of being blinded, of letting life go past (too fast)
But in memory you still find me and take me home at last

'Say I love you, and say it now'
Sings a busker to a crowd
Won't you share a smile if you look my way?
And together let's go out to play

We'll believe in freedom, we'll believe in love
We'll be flower children when the world was young
Just a moment on a Tuesday afternoon
One song on a corner

I believe in freedom, I still believe in love
I can taste the summer when the world was young
Just a moment on a Tuesday afternoon
One song on a corner
I give back to you

(One song... fade out)
