​The Last Of The Latin Lovers

This song is by Kevin Johnson and appears on the album In The Spirit Of The Times (1985).

I could never forget the night we met
In the moonlight
There was music and dancing and wild romance going on
And a band of young Cavalleros Played old Latin American songs
And tho' it sounds absurd
We never spoke a word
We only danced the whole night long

'Cause there was nothing we could say
Could take away from the moonlight
And there was nothing we could do
That was really new in our eyes
But there were dreams deep down inside us
That had long been well disguised
So we just stood there swaying
As the band kept playing
And our dreams just changed our lives

And I was the last of the latin lovers
She was the girl on the glossy covers
We were just made for one another
The magazines had told us so
And the night was bright with a thousand thrills
Setting alight to those Hollywood hills
Letting those passions slip between us
To tell us the night must never go

I could never forget the way we left in the morning
Two lonely people footloose and fancy free
She was tired of the way her life was
I was bored with being me
But at least for a night in that pale moonlight
We were the way we longed to be

When I was the last of the latin lovers
She was the girl on the glossy covers
We were just made for one another
Seems that we were the last to know
And the night was bright with a thousand thrills
But that was life in those Hollywood hills
Letting those passions come between us
To tell us the night must never go

I was the last of the latin lovers
She was the girl on the glossy covers
We were just made for one another
Everyone had told us so
And the night was bright with a thousand thrills
Coming alive in those Hollywood hills
Letting those passions slip between us
To tell us the night must never go
