Coming down from the Northern Air (and it just feels right)

This is a wonderful story, of finding an amazing lover and soul-mate via internet dating, at the ripe old age of seventy! The title itself comes from the circumstances of how Julie and I met. After our first date at the Hive Beach Café, where we got drenched by a freak rogue wave that left us soaked to the waist, Julie announced that she was going off to spend Christmas with her Son in Sweden. So our 'dating' continued over the internet, face-time and endless telephone calls into the wee small hours - a thousand miles apart. As our virtual relationship grew over the weeks it became clear to both of us that "It just feels right" and I wrote this love song for Julie over one evening almost straight off without any revisions. The words are deeply symbolic - "Harmonies on the cyber-waves" (our dating site was eharmony) "That single star in the window pane" was the Pole Star that we were both seeing tracking across our respective windows as we chatted on through the night.  

Although you're a thousand miles, you wrap me up inside your smiles

coming down from the Northern Air

so crisp and bright

Ain't it strange how lifes circle turns, those lessons were so hard to learn

but it seems like i'm almost there

and it just feels right

 

Well they said

Watch the screens and bide your time

you'll get your bearings when the stars align

and they’ll tell ya when the time is right

the stars are on fire tonight

Harmonies on the cyber waves, that single star in the window pane

And I’m counting the days ‘til you’re back again

And holding me so tight

For although you’re a thousand miles, you wrap me up inside your smiles

Coming down from the Northern Air

and It just feels right

Well they said

Watch the screens and bide your time

you'll get your bearings when the stars align

and they’ll tell ya when the time is right

well the stars are on fire tonight

Harmonies on the cyber waves, that single star in the window pane

And I’m counting the days ‘til you’re back again

And it just feels right

it just feels right

just feels  right
