Behind the Song
Liz Kennedy "Hello Romance"
"I liked the idea of speaking to romance as though romance were a person. A friend you can't depend on, a friend always welcomed back. When I wrote this I wasn't sure how it would go for the players in this story. However, I figured out later that I'm probably the woman and the man Michael. Important things happen in restaurants. A romantic dinner can bring such hope to an evening, to a life. We met at dinner on a blind date with some mutual friends and we didn't pay any attention to them. Can't remember what we ordered but if they served lamb chops he'd have had them. I don't really like prawns. We fell in love. That night, over dinner." - Liz Kennedy
