STRIP AWAY is very autobiographical. It speaks of a time when I couldn't seem to capture the kind of romantic relationship I believed possible. It's a prayer and plea to "Strip Away these vines that bind our hearts" to find the "pool of love - deep inside" that lives within each of us.


(Pamela Polland)

I think I know what I'm doing
I think I know what I'm doing
I think I know what I'm doing with you.........

In matters of Love, I like to play fastball,
Not that it's always been good for me;
I've gone for the fast climb, suffered the fast fall,
How I remain standing is complete mystery.

And when we strip away these vines around our hearts
We'll find a pool of love - deep inside -
Come on, let's strip away - let's find a cleaner start -
Strip away !

I know what I want, you fit the description,
Now it's a question of wait or pursue:
I know what I need, you fill the prescription,
Now I'm left with the rush of attraction to you.


I think I know what I'm doing
I think I know what I'm doing (Total 6x)
I think I know what I'm doing with you..........

I don't want to stretch, I don't want to slow down,
I'm pulled by desire and I don't want to wait:
If Love is like quicksand, together we'll go down,
Holding on to each other we'll make our escape.


I think I know what I'm doing
I think I know what I'm doing
I think I know......................................
