about

I think her name was Anne. We were kids. We picked flowers. She came up to me, kissed me on the cheek, giggled and blushed. It was, as the song says, a moment of sweet innocence.

lyrics

Secord Street

Music and Lyrics by Jim Love

There is a house on Secord Street
With an old glass porch where the sun shines in
It overlooks a field,
Where the [F] daisies bloom in the [G] summer breeze
Memories that the breeze blows in,
I think about it now and then
In a house on Secord Street,
With the sweet, summer innocence of youth

We picked daisies in the field
The sun beat down, but the breeze was cool
Crystal clear blue summer skies
We watched the clouds go sailing by
When we’d finally had our fill
We turned around to climb the hill
To the house on Secord Street
With the sweet, summer innocence of youth

You put the daisies in a jar
Brought them to the summer porch
Sunlight caught you in the door
I’d never felt this way before
You kissed my cheek and turned away
And I remember to this day
In a house on Secord Street
With the sweet, summer innocence of youth

Funny after all these years
How a moment reappears
Memories of that first kiss
A moment of sweet innocence
A picture frozen in my mind
From a magic summertime
In a house on Secord Street
With the sweet, summer innocence of youth

The sweet, summer innocence of youth
The sweet, summer innocence of you…

about

Jim Love Ontario

I wrote my first song when I was about 14 with the line "write me, box nothing, Trans Canada Highway". A few months later, I ran away to Vancouver. The songs never stopped.

In my 20's a Juno nomination and gold album as a writer for a kid's band. A couple of musicals live and on CBC and a series of songs.

After 40 years I'm back with some of my best songs. Never too late.
