An Affair By The Lake
An Affair by the Lake
(Music interlude)
They lunch at 'The Boathouse' a restaurant with views
Lakeside is charming discreet and infused
With the pheromone whiff of clandestine affairs
Voices are low in case somebody stares

The apartment is quiet, with views of the bridge
Motels ignored, due to sales reps and kids
The last things you need in a sweet afternoon
Are the cry of a child and the clinking of spoons

The game is the thing, the style not the substance
The consequences left for others to wear
Nothing is real and nothing compares with
The thrill of the game of a secret affair
(Music interlude)
Promises made will not be believed
Deceit is the basis of passion conceived
Better to whisper and groan with delight
And replay the memory later that night

The lingerie, perfume and bottles of wine
The lunch was the entree the main course divine
Waltzing with danger, the chance to be free
Betrayal is healthy if it doesn't hurt me!

By dusk they return to their relevant partners
Preparing the lies like a memorized prayer
No one gets hurt if nobody knows
and the dance can resume with an arrogant air
(Music interlude)

They lunch at 'The Boathouse' a restaurant with views.
