Hope it all turns out, this time around...

Robot Raven

This Time Around. I was thinking about the Sammy Cahn/Jimmy Van Heusen song The Second Time Around immortalized by Frank Sinatra and I thought it would be cool to give the idea a more modern twist - because actually some people have their second, third, fourth, fifth and sixth time around. Sometimes more. It's a song about going the distance - making this one work. I think John musically got the joy and melancholy just right.
This Time Around
I’ve loved and been lost.
Got love and been found.
Want to know where I’m headed,
this time around.
I thought I was happy.
Been up and been down.
Make sure it all turns out,
this time around.
More than my existence, this time around.
Got to go the distance, this time around.
Maybe I’m too serious.
Feet are on the ground.
Don’t want it to crumble,
this time around.
Life has just begun –
Want to be the one
growing old with you.
Will our love weather
when the sun goes down?
Want you and I forever,
this time around.
