In a Flash

Yes there really is an atmospheric phenomenon called "The Green Flash" that occurs very rarely when watching the sun's last gasp of light before it plunges into the Pacific Ocean (it doesn't work at sunrise).  I have seen it once or twice since moving to the coast of Southern California.  It's a magical event mainly because of the anticipation that precedes that moment of sunset (especially when you can share it with a romantic friend who is sitting next to you on the beach).  If that other person happens to be a green-eyed lady, well then, that's even better!

We’ve had a great day here by the sea

Toes in the sand and the parkin’ is free

Wrapped in a towel we’re watchin’ the sun sink slowly

 

CHORUS

Flash! Did you see the light?

Shine emerald green before our eyes?

Life still can be a surprise

So if you wanna play tonight (yeah-yeah)

IN A FLASH I am by your side.

I’ll be by your side,

I’ll be by your side IN A FLASH.

 

I never thought I would see it for real

So many times there’s nothin’ to feel

But here in your arms my fate your kiss has sealed as I kneel.

 

CHORUS

Flash! I have seen the light

Shine emerald green in your eyes

Love has a way to surprise

So if you wanna give it a try (yeah-yeah)

IN A FLASH I am by your side.

I’ll be by your side,

I’ll be by your side IN A FLASH your guy.

I’ll be by your side.

 

BRIDGE

I’ll be by your side as we realize the best is yet to come.

And though the night is dark we have lit a spark that shines like the sun

And what we could become.

 

Now every day is the chance to love you

By thinkin’ of us in whatever I do.

Selfish I was but the past has slipped from view - it’s all new.

 

CHORUS

Flash! I have seen the light

Shine emerald green in your eyes

Love has a way to surprise

So if you wanna give it a try (yeah-yeah)

IN A FLASH I am by your side.

I’ll be by your side,

I’ll be by your side IN A FLASH your guy.

I’ll be by your side IN A FLASH, IN A FLASH.

Your guy (IN A FLASH), your guy (IN A FLASH)
