Gwendolyn unfolds with the bright folkish optimism of a Cat Stevens song (think: "If You Want to Sing Out, Sing Out"), sung to a disheartened friend named, of course, Gwendolyn. Other comparisons can be made to the Beatles' "Dear Prudence" or Bob Dylan's "To Ramona," both which bear similar themes of friendly consolidation to someone with the blues. The tune is sophisticated and pleasant, and Minnesota's Brian Peterson has a kind voice that you want to trust. Gwendolyn, you could be laughing now All the hurt is far away Days go by, are better forgotten now Let the happiness in, and have a laugh, Gwendolyn. Gwendolyn, you could be singing now, Don't you hear the melody Be yourself, live in the moment Life's a game you could win So take a chance, Gwendolyn There was no use in pretending That everything might come your way. Might not be a storybook ending, But tomorrow could be your day. Gwendolyn, you could be dancing now Doesn't matter what the tune Soon there'll be music for everyone Let the dancing begin You and me, Gwendolyn. So when you get over denying you have a friend who cares for you. Don't ever give up on trying No matter what you do . Gwendolyn, you could be dancing now Doesn't matter what the tune Soon there'll be music for everyone Let the dancing begin You and me, Gwendolyn.
