"LOVE GOING BLIND" er eneste balladebidrag på "Movin' On". Urframført live i NRK TV's "I Ruta" nyttårsaften 1983 og utgitt på single i forkant av "Movin On'"-utgivelsen. "LOVE GOING BLIND" gir oss NJS i et luftig lydbilde med stramt arrangement. Eigil Berg synger, Asle Nilsen og Bjørn Kristiansen svarer i koret av og til og hele NJS gjør en god jobb i å formidle atmosfæren bak den stemningsfulle teksten. NJS på sitt mest melodiøse og en gjenganger på NJS-reperoaret flere år etter utgivelsen. 

Urframføringen fra nyttårsaften 1983 er utgitt på samlingen "NJS - LIVE!".  

 

Love Going Blind

(Eigil Berg)

She never knew the game

Very soon she would discover

He tasted wealth and fame

Was in the mood to find a lover

She never knew the road never got those motel blues

She read the magazines and played the radio

He was in the mood knew he never had to lose

Felt a little bit like Valentino

To find love going blind

 

Wheels rolling on and on

Every minute every hour

Deals got him to the bone

Hit the top by losin' power

Tryin' to ease the pain goin' for the mornin' rain

They never tried to outdo one another

Walkin' on the line offering sweet champagne

Ever so afraid of going sober

To find love going blind

 

When you wake up to the morning sun

And you find that the promises are dead and gone

Let them out all the feelings you hide within

Let them out all the triumphs that might have been

 

Never had the blues never had to wait that long

Tryin' to make it last until forever

Tryin' to make it fast

Tryin' to catch the break of dawn

Pickin' up the pieces left together

To find love going blind
