  • A fool in love
    A crazy situation
    Her velvet glove
    Knocks me down and down and down and down.
    Her kiss of fire
    A loaded invitation
    Inside her smile
    She takes me down and down and down and down.
    Her moves look good
    A touch of desparation
    From where I stood
    She turned my head around and round and round.
    It comes kinda hard
    When I hear your voice on the radio
    Taking me back down the road that leads back to you.
    Oh-oh 29 Palms
    I feel the heat of your desert heart
    Taking me back down the road that leads back to you.
    Oh, I'm burning in love!
    A strange infatuation
    Why cold cold touch, mmm
    What must I do, do, do, do
    The heat and the dust
    Increase my desolation
    In God we trust
    Always for you, and you, and you, and you.
    It comes kinda hard
    When I hear your voice on the radio
    Leading me back down the road that leads back to you.
    Oh-oh-oh 29 Palms
    I feel the heat of your desert heart
    Leading me back down the road that leads back to you.
    Baby, now
    It comes kinda hard
    When I hear your voice on the radio
    Leading me back down the road that leads back to you.
    Oh, don't ya hear me baby, now
    29 Palms I feel the heat of your desert heart
    Leading me back down the road that leads back to you you you,
    Yeah-yeah-yeah I'm coming home, oh oh
    Gonna get there, gonna get there, don't ya know babe
    It comes kinds hard I said when I hear your voice on the radio
    Leading me back down the road that leads back to ooh ooh ooh ooh

  • Bigshadowdog from Alexandria, VaAccording to Alannah Myles Facebook page: "Alannah & Robert became an item after her meteoric rise to fame. Torn between her hard won success and loving his philandering heart, she chose music and has never looked back. During their recording separation she wrote an orchestrated ballad 'Song Instead Of A Kiss' revealing lost love, he wrote an ode to her favourite place in the California dessert, '29 Palms'. "
  • Paul from Marysville, WaI love this song. When it came out I had recently begun a job as a delivery driver. I was also just starting to recover from a major loss, so for me that line "leading me down the road that leads back to you" meant I was getting back to being my normal happy self.
  • Will from Memphis, TnI was stationed in 29 Palms for many years, met the love of my life there. Most people think of 29 Palms as a desert waste land, but it is one of this country's hidden treasures. I often hear "her voice" on the radio, music was such a big influence on both of us, there were several songs that had special meaning for both of us. I remember the evening that we both first heard this song, at a bar called The Virginian, in 29 Palms.
  • Jimbo from Sequim, WaOK, this may be completely coincidence, but VH1 aired a show called "Bands Reunited" featuring a punk band from the 80s named Romeo Void. The singer opened her door and exclaimed, "What's VH1 doing here in 29 Palms....
