Do you remember the night the lights went out,
All along the promenade?
It started to rain, my coat, your dress got wet
We laughed til we almost cried

Your spirit was so contagious
Our timing really bad
You were so outrageous --
How could we hold back?

The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
Remembering...

Do you remember the night that we ran out
Out on English Bay?
We went out on the water,
The tow almost pulled us away

Man, right then, the sparks would fly
We'd get into such a mess
Our timing really stunk back then
We didn't give a damn what they thought, I guess

The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
Remembering...

And maybe when the skies flew open,
Right then, the lies would be broken
Your eyes, they did all the talking:
"Keep your heart open wide"

Can you remember the trip we took
In the Malibu to the west coast?
We drove through a rainbow up on Rogers Pass,
They never thought you'd get that close

The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
The secret is to know when to stop
Remembering...
