AFTERNOON DELIGHT words & music Brian Campbell © reg. SOCAN

It’s so nice in the afternoon
Here with you in my living room
We’re doing nothing special
Just reading and smoking and lyin’ around yeah
We might make love yeah
It’s not on our minds right now except for mine but I won’t admit it
keep it to myself -- might just preclude an opportunity—

It’s so nice in the afternoon
Here with you in my living room
The sky is an ashtray
and the air outside cold as what’s behind my freezer door
without you I’d be looking at the walls
and thru the frost on my window sill
But now I can look at youuuuuuuuuuu

There’s a lightness in these lines
But a darkness in between
I can joke and a-make you laugh
But all this could be a dream
Here being with you

It’s so nice in the afternoon
Here with you in my living room
Together we could fly through the sky
to other planets beyond our sun
where lotus blossoms rain like jewels over everyone
where there’s no need for Buddha or Christ or Jain or anything like that
where everything’s so amber warm inside and oh so good
we could stay here forever, and I’m sure we will
la-n’-dee-da-dum

It’s so nice in the afternoon
Here with you in my living room
We’re doing nothing special
Just reading and smoking and lyin’ around yeah
We might make love yeah
It’s not on our minds right now except for mine but I won’t admit it
Why not admit it? Yeah! Let’s do it!

It’s so nice in the afternoon
Here with you in my living room...
