There I was, fourteen spinning
With my arms out like a scarecrow

Walking down Monroe to the park
Dancing up Madison

With my eyes closed your feet
Sounding like a symphony of strings
You picked me up and whispered "Forever"
Like a secret in my ears
Now. . .

    General Commentisn't it "with my eyes close to your feet" ??? i can't see the sense in the other version ;-)
    i love the "now...". for me it shows what "forever" really means.

    does anyone know why it's titled palisade???

    General Comment"With my eyes closed, your feet sounded like a symphony of strings "---the correct words.

    General Commenti think it might be the name of the park - Palisade Park, could be wrong tho

    General Commentgreat song, but one part is very odd sounding, right before he says symphony the second time, he says it very weird.

    General CommentTo 4Christ (assuming you still actually read this), check out the song February, &Serenading, Sadder Star, pretty much all of their album The Power of Failing... oh who am I kidding, it's all amazing...
