2. Santa Monica -

Lyrics and Music by Michael Gordon Shapiro (ASCAP)

Beachside breakers after dark
Two young lovers lost in moonlight
chasing sparks
Stolen moments from a hidden cache of time
I'll spend some of yours
and you'll spend some of mine

Barefoot children racing by
Laughter blending into surf and inky night
Ferris wheel divides the circle of the moon
Boardwalk beckons but we mustn't go too soon
First this moment -

Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's savor life while time is on our side

Dancing through Pacific foam
Distant mountains are their only chaperone
He's too slow and so it's catch me if you can
Ocean mists caress her thighs down in the sand
Stolen moments --

Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's capture life while time is on our side

Parking meters fast asleep
No one else is real, there's only you and me
Sacred hours, broken moonlight in your hair
Our conspiracy and memory to share
Just this moment --

Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Santa Monica
Let's savor life while time is on our side
