foreign affair
(Tony Joe White)

A one in a million chance
You know the moment that you cross over the line
A casual glance
And no one has to read between the lines

In the south of France
It was springtime
Special feelings come alive
There’s romance in the air
So they say
Love could be a small cafe away

Love is a piece of cake
And making love is all there is to eat
It’s a heart out on a limb
When you start to feel forever in a kiss

But you must remember
There’s no point of refuge
You only have a part
In a lover’s play
And you could be the one left in the dark
If someone takes a shortcut to your heart

And all too soon you’re touching
For the last time
No one has to tell you how it is
It’s just memory two people share
File it under foreign affair
