Let's Not Stop

(slow – cocktail lounge torch)

(lyrics)

How long’s it been?
Remember when we started,
the first late night all-nights,
how we studied the topography
of love – the climbs and falls,
afternoon calls that left us weak
to meet, to repeat our dance,
steps neither of us had taken?
We’re so close to the top, baby . . . .
Let’s not stop.

How long’s it been?
No one could call this sin.
It’s delicious pie alamode,
a chocolate mousse dessert,
no one got hurt, we took our time
which was fine with us.
We didn’t fuss about hair,
and you didn’t care if I made you laugh
when you wanted to scream… .
We’re so close to the top, baby . . . .
Let’s not stop.

(bridge)

How long’s it been,
this café latte dream?
I remember – it’s always there,
the glow in your eyes,
the color of love I know.
No other could take its place.
Your face – above – mine below.
Remember? We’re everywhere.

How long’s it been,
remember when we started,
the first late night all-nights,
how we studied the topography
of love – the climbs and falls,
afternoon calls that left us weak
to meet, to repeat our dance,
steps neither of us had taken?
We’re so close to the top, baby . . . .
Let’s not stop.

How long’s it been?
It seems so long ago, yet I know
I’d find you anywhere . . .
You’d be there, starlight in your hair,
open arms, sounds of pleasure; we lock
our perfect treasure between us.
Remember when we started?
We’ve never really parted… .
We’re so close to the top, baby . . . .
Let’s not stop.

(repeat as you like… .)
