[Judges' Award 2016 - 1st Place] Ed Jones - Love Is Blind by songwritingchallenge published on 2016-10-06T18:58:40Z Judges' Award 2016 - 1st Place Ed Jones - Love is Blind I actually cheated, as I loved the image of the dancers, but then also saw McCartney and Dylan on the same wall, so it got me thinking about mixing fantasy and reality and overcoming shyness by comparing yourself to icons. Something like that... Shall I be your Romeo, you could be my Juliet, Or Sir Lancelot to your Lady Guinevere? Maybe I'll be Tarzan swinging through the trees to Jane, If you were RapunzeI I would scale your golden stair. I could be Trevor Howard on a steamy Platform 4, You'd be Celia Johnson falling in my arms. Or I could be Rhett Butler whisking Scarlett off her feet, You would be Miss Bennett Lost in Mr Darcy's charms I'm afraid the reality may not match the fantasy So why don't you close your eyes and dance with me? At the risk of sounding an old romantic fool I hope love is blind and I pray that you don't see. You can be Roberta Flack, Flushed with fever in the crowd, While I stand here and softly kill you with my song I'm McCartney serenading his Michelle My Belle Or Bob Dylan whispering may you stay forever young I'm afraid the reality may not match the fantasy So why don't you close your eyes and dance with me? At the risk of sounding an old romantic fool I hope love is blind and I pray that you don't see.
