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 desperation From where I stood She turned my head around and around and around
It comes kinda hard When I hear your voice on the radio (hear your voice on the radio) Taking me back down the road leads back to you
Oh-oh 29 Palms I feel the heat of your desert heart (feel the heat of your desert heart) Taking me back down the road 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 (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 (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 (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 you Ooh ooh ooh ooh 29 Palms

Jb from Deer Park,wiI think it's about anyone that leads a music entertainers life. Travelling on the road hoping to get back home again for a normal life instead of the demands of the road.
Hellena from UkThis reminds me of Sting Desert Rose in some ways. A mysterious seductive Desert Woman..probably with dark hair & blue eyes ... Like Alanna Myles lol
Clint from TaosCome on. “Her velvet glove”?!? He even used the riff from her song (Black Velvet)
Ted from SeattleI knew a DJ who worked at the 29 palms radio station at the time the song was written who indicated they and Robert had a "thing" and the song was about that.
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....
Originally a chart-topper for Steve Lawrence in 1962 chart-topper, "Go Away Little Girl," became the first song of the rock era to be taken to #1 by two different artists when Donny Osmond's cover version also reached the summit in 1971.
