i lay the table and prepare the food
select the tunes i want to play
i light the candles to set the mood
for this very special day .
we exchange a tender greeting
when i see you at the door
i've dreamed so often of this meeting
yet my heart beats as never before .
we feed morsels to each other
what a romantic way to dine
and as we relax with one another
your eyes converse with mine .
to soft music on the stereo
i hold you as we dance
gentle kisses and a whispered ''hello''
this will be a wonderful romance .
there will be a time for passion
but tonight is not the night
though this may not be the latest fashion
we'll just hold each other tight .
we chatter as i drive you home
and kiss you goodnight outside your door
now i'm praying you will telephone
to say you'd like to meet once more .
