Gail Marten: Listen

Pure Joy

(Gail Marten)

A lyrical, light-hearted invitation to lust by the sea. Insistent, pulse-driven melody.

The moon is full,
The stars are bright,
We’re here alone,
A sultry night.
Why do you keep me waiting?
We could be celebrating,
Why are you hesitating?
It could be happening, Pure Joy.

I like your looks,
I love your style.
Slip off your shoes,
And stay awhile.
Your eyes are hypnotizing.
Your lips are tantalizing,
Temperature sure is rising,
Could this be happening, Pure Joy?

The water’s warm,
The coast is clear.
The tide is low,
Let’s disappear.
My heart is palpitating,
I need some validating,
Some re-negotiating,
It could be happening, Pure Joy.

Last time:
Why do you keep me waiting?
We could be celebrating?
Why are you hesitating?
It could be happening, Pure Joy.
