Story

The beautiful sound of a cello sets the mood for a sweet, evocative stroll down memory lane, reminiscing a life time love and knowing that soon the two will united.

Lyrics

So many friends were lost in the war

I said I wouldn’t make you a widow

And promised to marry if I made it back

 

When my ship pulled into the shore

I took you in my arms in a sailor’s kiss

Breathed in your smile and that mischievous laugh

 

You said I’ve been waiting

It’s not polite to keep a girl waiting…and we had

 

Gin and tonic with appetizers

Cognac with Dessert

Looking out at the Golden Gate

Anywhere with you

Anywhere with you, I’d go

 

Kids, dog, a revolving door

A garage that looked like a sporting goods store

Station wagon, the American dream

 

We pinched every penny

Gave thanks for all of our blessings

But late at night thumbed through travel magazines

 

I’d say, “There will come a day

When I will whisk my favorite girl away”…to have

 

Gin and tonic with appetizers

Cognac with Dessert

Sitting on the left bank of the Seine

Anywhere with you

Anywhere with you, I’d go

 

And once again, I’m keeping you waiting

I never meant to keep you waiting

But I’ve always come through

And I’m catching up with you

I’ll see you soon…to have

 

Gin and tonic with appetizers

Cognac with Dessert

I don’t think God will mind I think of heaven as

Anywhere with you

Anywhere with you

I’d go, I’d go, Anywhere…to have

Gin and tonic with appetizers

Cognac with Dessert
