(On A) Sunny Day In Vancouver

by Chris Sorrenti

On a sunny day in Vancouver
I'll meet you by the ocean
Near the Strait of Georgia
Where the gulls call out our names
We can find ourselves a café
That has an open terrace
Remember all the good times
What we were like in the old days

On a sunny day in Vancouver
We can count up all the miles
See how far we've really come
Amid the fresh salt air
Mountains in the distance
Tall as our spirits
Dogwoods rising to meet the Spring
Amid the green and grey

Yes they say there's nothing like it
A sunny day in Vancouver
And everybody wears a smile
As they go their separate ways
And if by chance we meet there
You'll see those golden sunbeams
Reflecting off the buildings
To the smile in my eyes

On a sunny day in Vancouver
I'll meet you by the ocean
Forlorn ships back from sea
No more plunged into the blue
On a sunny day in Vancouver
We can recount all the good times
Get to know each other again
Beneath those golden rays

Oh and I do recall a Sunday morning a few years ago in Vancouver. My wife and I were staying just across the border in Washington celebrating our anniversary. You have a beautiful city there. Nice write Chris.

I don't imagine messages like these ever go out of style. Perfect, beautiful.

You've painted a beautiful picture. So crisp and inviting. I've never been to Vancover. You make it sound so friendly
