Hassles I don't, as a rule, enjoy Jazz but find subtle tasteful influences as employed here most enjoyable. Tara's take on the music, her harp and voice make this what it is. Tara is tremendous :-)

Track Name: Rock n' Roll Romance
Baby shall we chance a rock n' roll romance?
'Cause you know these things never last very long
We could both pretend our love would never end
When it feels this good what could go wrong?

But babe, you know that I'll only leave you
Unless of course, first you leave me
And then where would I be?
Besides seriously pissed I gave my heart away so carelessly.

Baby shall we chance a rock n' roll romance?
'Cause you know we both got the soul
Heading out on tour, you never can be sure
'Cause neither one of us has much self control

But babe you know that you'll only leave me
Unless of course first I leave you
And then what would you do?
If I told you we're through!
Guess it wouldn't take long to find someone new...

Oh baby shall we chance a rock n' roll romance?
Can folk like you and me ever really fall in love?
We won't get very far with a harp and a guitar
We both knew it was doomed from the start.

But baby, when I look into your eyes
I know it with a single glance
This rock n' roll romance
Though it don't stand a chance
Still, I know we're gonna try
And make this grand piano fly!
