Out of dream she came up tight beside him
Step by step, side by side they were glidin'
She knew for her there would never be another
He found more than he had ever dreamed of in a lover

He was older than her, she was much younger they said
Together they made quite a number
Just like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard

They had met one lonely night in stormy weather
Vowed that one day they would be together
She pulled the ribbon from her hair it fell around her
She closed her eyes, he held her close, she felt his hunger

He was older than her, she was much younger they said
Together they made quite a number
Just like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard

Standing naked like a goddess in her tempting see-through gown
The alter of love went up in flames on their way down
They had dreamed to be like this alone together
Dreamed and longed to taste these midnight pleasures

Out of a dream came love and flaming passion
Hotter than fire and burning way long after
He said the love she gave to him was worth a fortune
And the gold and diamonds that she wore left cold eyes scorchin'

He was older than her, she was much younger they said
Together they made quite a number
Just like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard
He was older than her, she was much younger they said
Together they made quite a number
Just like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard
Just like Clark Gable and Carole Lombard

Spring Is Springin'
americana story, hollywood, neat strings, dig the rap, hit it...


APPLAUSE
the band rocks, neil's key largo-ish story invokes hollywood glamor and scandal, the riffage's groovy, the strings are killer, the rap also, ho ho, w the echoey harmonica, "the midnight pleasures," into the lush chorus, kudos...
