Yonder Blue

I see on the news, it's raining in London
Forty-six degrees
I hope you packed your raincoat darlin'
A scarf to protect you from the chilly breeze
I'm lookin' at the balmy Pacific
A kickline of palm trees
Oh you're in London
it's raining
forty-six degrees

I read in the paper, it's foggy in Paris
The forecast is scattered showers
I picture you standing in a light drizzle
At the base of the Eiffel Tower
I am due to arrive in Vancouver in about
A couple of hours
Oh you're in Paris
it's foggy
expecting scattered showers

Half a world away are we
I worry about you constantly
Are you dry?
Are you warm?
Are you safe from the storm?
Are you taking your vitamins regularly?
I'd trade all I've got to be with you
That's something you have not asked me to do
So I travel around, I barely touch down
When you call from Yonder Blue

The pilot says it's warm and sunny in New York
Skies are crystal clear
I'm descending from the West
You're descending from the East
Please let this be our year
I can't wait to see your face
Hold your sweetness so near
Oh it's warm and it's sunny in New York City
Skies are crystal clear
The future looks rosy
Let's get cozy
Hey stranger
Over here
