california town

Good evening, lovely evening

A perfect evening for a stroll on the town

Couples on the boardwalk and down on the sandbar

Holding hands, staring out to the moon on the ocean

Silver and soft water in motion

Car lights, Pacific highway, we look both ways

My baby and me, we find a fancy restaurant

A table outside, in a quiet corner please

Wind in the palm trees, candles and wine

Her clear blue eyes, we stay till closing

Come on, my love, we can walk home

Past the dancers and the bands winding down

Remind me again, what's the question?

We belong here in this California town

Slow fade of summer stars in the sky

Songs in the night, the boom of the breakers

The pull of the tide, the swell and the sigh

Salt in the sea spray
