Song of the Deay – “Amelia” – Joni Mitchell

The drone of flying engines
Is a song so wild & blue
It scrambles time & seasons if it gets through to you
Then your life becomes a travelogue
Of picture post card charms
Oh Amelia it was just a false alarm

My baby girl is 20 today. Although, lyrically, the song has nothing to do with my own Amelia, I wanted to pay tribute to a beautiful girl with a beautiful song from Hejira.
