Before you go to sleep
And close your eyes
I'd like to kiss you
One more time
Touch your lips
Perhaps your soul
I'll be still and say no more
Oh tell me do you feel the same way I do

Well the night was sweet
You filled the air
Your gentle hands touched me everywhere
I don't want this moment to end
I'm afraid that we can't find it again
Oh tell me do you feel the same way I do
Oh tell me do you feel the same way I do

The fragile bond
Between us here
Would take to build, a thousand years
Before you close your eyes
Just one more kiss
A million years before we feel like this
Oh tell me do you feel the same way I do
Oh tell me do you feel the same way I do

How can I trust my feelings
In a moment that's always changing
Tell me do you feel the same way I do
The same way I do

Hey do you feel
Yea do you feel
Hey do you feel
The same way I do

That sounds about right. 

He recently said of his breakup with Meg Ryan: “I loved Meg Ryan. She hates me to death.” “I think it’s because I’m a child. I throw fits, I gripe, I complain. I’m moody. Every bad thing that a fella can be, that’s me.”

So he probably is all of those things. However, none of that changes the artistry of his music.  It might even inform it.

 
Yeah, but I think his music is getting better. He still plays  good RnR. He's got quite a legacy of pretty good albums. His live shows are good.

He's the epitome of the "hippie-redneck" music genre. I think you gotta be from the midwest to get it. 
first time ever hearing this, and its decent, but that's some SOLID slide gee-tar

Never.

Caught a TV interview that Sammy Hagar did with John. Mr. Mellencamp came across as a crotchety, old, angry SOB.

I just read the Allmusic review in this LP, Here is an excerpt.

" This may not be a record that brings chart success, or even critical acclaim, but it does find Mellencamp at a kind of peak, turning out vividly socially conscious roots rock that works not because of the message, but because the music is seductive and sinewy enough to deliver the message. The grooves and riffs are earthy, so much so that when Chuck D drops a rap at the bridge in the title track, it seems natural, not forced; similarly, India.Arie's presence on "Peaceful World" enhances the plea for understanding at the core of the album, instead of distracting from it, and it feels as right as Trisha Yearwood's duet on "Deep Blue Heart." Ultimately, this is a record of small, subtle triumphs, but they are triumphs all the same, finding Mellencamp crafting music that's earthy yet succeeds because of the small details. It's a laid-back record — even when it rocks hard, it rocks like a bunch of guys having fun on a back porch on a Saturday afternoon — but that's its charm, since it's natural, real, and unassuming...." 
First Mellencamp song i hear that i actually like.

Drive you crazy.  Don't ever assume that everyone else has your issues and, even if they did, they probably wouldn't cry about them twice in the same thread.

Not usually a Mellencamp fan, but I'm liking this one.

indeed.  I am glad he fell off the pop wagon and became true to himself.

+1, not familiar with this album. Great bluesy groove and harmonies on this!

Liking this a lot.   Good addition to RP.

It's not great, but it's good and it anytime sure beats the hell out of the vastly overplayed dreck of Little Pink Houses or that little ditty about Jack and Diane. And a reprieve from his thump thump thump drummer. 
I go on line to get away form this crap.
I like this, and will have to check out other recent stuff. Mellencamp seems like one of the rare pop artists who gets better, and changes, as he ages.
First impression: I like the slide guitar.
Simple, elegant song that slowly builds. Nothing fancy, just a well written song.
...hmmm. I was bored. I didn\'t hear the song. But, I decided to read the comments. I read the comments. I searched out the lyrics. It\'s a simple but deep love song. Play it again, Bill :roll:
boring.
Very John....slinky....
To poop on!
Melloncamp is a loser. Can you imagine words that are more trite? \"Touch your lips, perhaps you soul.\" Give me a break!
has a good groove, sounds good - gave it a 10 because it was dipping below decent (which is what I would give this song)
This song is actually okay!
