Liner Notes: 

Since this is a worldwide forum, "20 below" is Fahrenheit (nothing I ever want to experience...!) and it might not make sense if you're thinking Celsius. I think the rest of the world beyond the U.S. uses Celsius? Not sure what negative 20 C would be. Anyway, any comments are welcome!

Lyrics: 

HEY, ROMANCE

Love is frisky
In twenty below
Love is risky
With its fire and prose

Passion has style
Would win in a duel
Passion is wild
Doesn’t follow the rules

[ch]
Hey, romance,
People play every day
From islands in Bali
To northeast France
Hey, romance
Summer, fall, winter, spring
Every year the seasons sing
I think I’ll start making plans
Hey, romance

Hearts will gamble
And play for keeps
Hearts light a candle
And say they believe

Whispers are smiles
With tender care
Messages sent
By lovers everywhere

[ch]
Hey, romance
People play every day
From islands in Bali
To northeast France
Hey, romance
Summer, fall, winter, spring
Every year the seasons sing
I think I’ll start making plans
Hey, romance

[br]
Come a little closer
We’ll have some good times
Keep the stories cozy
Help us see the signs

[ch]
Hey romance
People play every day
From islands in Bali
To northeast France
Hey, romance
Summer, fall, winter, spring
Every year the seasons sing
I think I’ll start making plans
Hey, romance

Catchy chorus! It's clever; fun. I like how you went from passion to love to hearts then whispers in each verse. Nicely done! I think this works on so many levels!

-20 C is -4 F. I used to go skating in -20 weather in Wisconsin. Smile Personifying Romance is a fabulous technique. Great lyrics. I came to check some out after hearing what you and Klaus did. Fabulous.

As TomS says, the personification, almost like a platonic ideal, is interesting. Nice balance of verse/chorus, the music of it kinda jumps out at you as you read.
