Morning Song – Slow Turning

May 3, 2017

It’s a rock & roll truism that “it’s better to burn out than to fade away“.

John Hiatt’s “Slow Turning” offers a third alternative.

Perhaps, young person (the song seems to suggest), what feels like “fading away”, a loss of your previous energy and drive and focus and clarity is something different—what Hiatt calls a “slow turning from the inside out“.

It’s been a slow turning,
From the inside out;
A slow turning,
But you come about.

Slow learning,
But you learn to sway;
A slow turning baby,
Not fade away.
