Nitty Gritty Dirt Band: Modern Day Romance

It’s a modern day romance
A new kind of game
With no time to slow dance
In the fast lane

Wondering where she might have gone
And why I even care

One of those songs , courtesy of Kix Brooks and Dan Tyler, that hits you when you don’t see it coming:

Originally found on their Partners, Brother and Friends album, originally released in 1985.

The Nitty Gritty Dirt Band had a later song, with Suzy Bogguss, from their Not Fade Away album (1992), “Don’t Underestimate Love”, with lyrics of comparable import, by Matraca Berg and founding band member Jeff Hanna:

Baby just because it’s painful
It doesn’t mean it’s real
Sometimes we’re simply desperate
For something to feel
Don’t underestimate love

It’s the same old bedtime story
The same old dreams of glory
We all hold on to
It’s all so beautifully tragic
So painfully romantic
But so far from the truth
