A trip to Venice with a friend... could we be more?

Venice Beckons

As Venice beckons past the shore

As Venice beckons past the shore our eager eyeballs strain for more

As Venice beckons past the shore our eager eyeballs strain for more its towers climb from pure lagoon

As Venice beckons past the shore our eager eyeballs strain for more its towers climb from pure lagoon like symphony in perfect tune

the city rides on glinting blue

the city rides on glinting blue like silhouette that angels drew

the city rides on glinting blue like silhouette that angels drew a gift from heaven to the land

the city rides on glinting blue like silhouette that angels drew a gift from heaven to the land and placed on Earth by saintly hand

our water bus divides the sheen

our water bus divides the sheen as we behold the coming scene

our water bus divides the sheen as we behold the coming scene I turn to Amy and watch her face

our water bus divides the sheen as we behold the coming scene I turn to Amy and watch her face as bricks and stone arise with grace

we're only friends, that's all we know

we're only friends, that's all we know but stunned by waves and sunny glow

we're only friends, that's all we know but stunned by waves and sunny glow I watch the glee upon her cheeks

we're only friends, that's all we know but stunned by waves and sunny glow I watch the glee upon her cheeks and bask in all the joy it speaks

my mind relives how much we've laughed

my mind relives how much we've laughed at private jokes and acts so daft

my mind relives how much we've laughed at private jokes and acts so daft and how our banter feels so light

my mind relives how much we've laughed at private jokes and acts so daft and how our banter feels so light inciting smiles that fill the night

I blink, my eyeball hit with spray

I blink, my eyeball hit with spray I sigh and push those thoughts away

I blink, my eyeball hit with spray I sigh and push those thoughts away so much we have, too much to lose

I blink, my eyeball hit with spray I sigh and push those thoughts away so much we have, too much to lose I return to safety of the views

across the waters we approach

across the waters we approach and buildings greet as we encroach

across the waters we approach and buildings greet as we encroach the wooden dock where mortals tread

across the waters we approach and buildings greet as we encroach the wooden dock where mortals tread and gaze into the streets ahead

the narrow walks by calm canals

the narrow walks by calm canals invite us in like welcome pals

the narrow walks by calm canals invite us in like welcome pals revealing bars and secret lanes

the narrow walks by calm canals invite us in like welcome pals revealing bars and secret lanes and smells of food from hushed domains

by faded walls we sigh in awe

by faded walls we sigh in awe such beauty dwells in every flaw

by faded walls we sigh in awe such beauty dwells in every flaw thin boats of wood glide by with ease

by faded walls we sigh in awe such beauty dwells in every flaw thin boats of wood glide by with ease as lungs inhale the ocean breeze

we make our way to St Mark's Square

we make our way to St Mark's Square where colonnades and arches flair

we make our way to St Mark's Square where colonnades and arches flair and mighty domes entrance our sight

we make our way to St Mark's Square where colonnades and arches flair and mighty domes entrance our sight atop cathedral walls of white

we turn to face with blazing grins

we turn to face with blazing grins as hints of gold enhance our skins

we turn to face with blazing grins as hints of gold enhance our skins she hugs me tighter than a snare

we turn to face with blazing grins as hints of gold enhance our skins she hugs me tighter than a snare and whisps of intrigue fill the air
