Song Description

A short story of falling in love with a beautiful woman and the romance of being in a tropical paradise.

Story Behind the Song

I wanted to write a song that I thought Michael Franks would want to cover. I pay homage to Tom Jobim and my admiration for Bossa Nova/Samba music from Brazil.

Lyrics

Wet and warm like Amazon
We float under palm tropic sky.
Water music calls, into a pool we fall,
In the Curve of Her Smile, she is mine
interlude

Silk on skin, scent of Jasmine.
Slow sips of wine from her eyes
Kiss rich and hot, taste 'de chocolate
In the Curve of Her Smile, she is mine.
In the Curve of Her Smile,

bridge:
Quiet sambas on Antonio's guitar
Corcovado half way to the stars.
Wondrous joy when love can stay in tune,
Take me Brazilian moon.
instr.
bridge:
Quiet sambas on Antonio's Guitar
Corcovado half way to the stars.
Wondrous joy when love can stay in tune,
Take me Brazilian moon.

Star lit sky, the orchid bloom
Wisp of love lust in the night.
Finger tips explore
We rise into the void.
In The Curve Of Her Smile, she is mine.
In the Curve of Her Smile, she is mine.
In the Curve of Her Smile....
