A New Old Feeling
© 2007
Dan Johnson

A new old feeling persistently beats inside my head,
with stories about a love affair, long time dead.
Then one day, there you stood,
and just like before…the sight of you
made my whole world A hazy blue…
now I’ve got that new old feeling once again.
Any common sense I thought I had…proved so wrong…
Now the love I have for you is twice as strong,

I blame it on that new old feeling of love that
beats inside my head…just beats
like a 4-4 count inside my head,
and now
I’ve got that new old feeling…and I don’t think it’s going to go away.
I pray that feeling lasts a million years and then…one more day.

I won’t run and hide, no place to go,
just gonna lay around smiling
and praying everyday to thank the lord above
because I love this new old feeling and this time
I know that it’s here to stay.

Dan Johnson

These verses and the whole song expresses something to which I can relate, Dan. Thank you. Love and peace,

Good, you are looking forward to a brand new day and into the future. It can be put to song it is so good a psalm. Enjoyed the positiveness in this one and never do get down and out as you can always go on with someone new and thank God for that.

I love this! It captures the heart and though we may be with someone and love mellows over time, there are also shining moments when we appreciate how much we have. Good reminder, Dan! Eileen

I think I hear Johnny Cash tunning that old guitar...

That New Old Feeling - now that would make a pretty cool song title, my friend, and you've already started penning it. When can we hear it on You Tube??!!

Beautiful, meaningful lyrics, Dan, exquisitely penned.

(((HUGS))) and love, Karla.

I really like the way the second stanza ends: " I pray that more day" Great line and an overall good rhythm that might need a little editing if set to song but good... the title almost reminds me of the old "Jethro Tull" song: "A New Day Yesterday" but a more country feel here - first stanza is great as is.... Keep it going... michael guy
