RENDEZVOUS  

 

I’m finger poppin’ as I’m boppin’ up the boulevard
Over the hotel is a neon moon
Strollin’ through the lobby, I see you in the bar
Here on a RENDEZVOUS 

I find you sippin’ wine on a couch in the corner
A portrait of a California ingénue
Takes me back in time, for more than just a moment
On a RENDEZVOUS 

CHORUS               On a RENDEZVOUS we’ll sail up the mountain
Change our point of view
Love is like a river that rolls on to the sea

When I got your call I nearly spilled my coffee
Last time we spoke was in 1992*
Swore I wouldn’t fall for a faded memory
Here on a RENDEZVOUS 

Now you sigh we never should have parted
My heart feels like a rose in bloom
Then you cry, let’s finish what we’ve started
On a RENDEZVOUS

CHORUS               On a RENDEZVOUS we’ll sail up the mountain
And change our point of view
Love is like a river that rolls on to the sea

BRIDGE                                

On a RENDEZVOUS it’s a dream come true

But you can’t stay the whole night through

On a RENDEZVOUS

I’m swirlin’ my drink as I’m thinkin’ about you in the bar
The hands on the clock are stuck on ten to two
I’m longin’ for the next time, I’ll hold you in my arms
On a RENDEZVOUS 

CHORUS               On a RENDEZVOUS we’ll sail up the mountain
To change our point of view
Love is like a river, flowin’ to the sea
