The Secret Is To Know When To Stop Tom Cochrane / Mad Mad World 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 Maybe wehn 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...
