This track was written when some dear friends were going thru divorce and others were looking for " the one " Julie brings a beautiful vocal and breathes life into a song about a woman who leaves everything behind in search of a new life in Rome. Off " Dualistic Nature" in 2001


She boards the Rome express just in time
He wont be waiting on down the line
Someday the tears will dry on her pretty face
But tonights not the time and not the place
The hills roll by the drawn down shades
She never questions the choice that she has made
Friends say that answers reveal in time
Her new life starts out alone

From her left bank loft on St Germaine
To the hotel sienna where she remains
Espresso shots chase the sleep away
Walk the spanish steps to begin each day
Her questions are whispered so no one hears
They disappear gone into the morning air
Hoping each new dawn the clouds will clear
and joy and happiness reappear

So with each pensive step
To the welcome in each strangers smile
To the Trevi fountain she returns to pray that her heart
will be strong when the time is right

One day she takes a walk down the Appian way
" a great place to nail the past up! " she hears someone say
And now's the perfect time to love again
So today she will be going along with him
They stroll along the Tiber, chianti in hand
Romeo is spilling his heart to be her only man
Life feels so good she starts to cry
Her spirits' finally made it back home
