NO MORE SUMMERTIME

Long ago
I wrote a song of love and laughter
That no-one else could understand

The perfect song
It spoke of all I’d ever wished for
Of all the dreams I’d ever had

Lonely tunes
Waiting for the one 
Who’d sing beside me


The world turns
The chorus fades
Without her there will be

No summer sky
No field of green
No time to sing of all the wonders I have seen
A fall of rain, a cooling breeze
All at once I’m listening to a whisper
The falling of leaves
No more summertime

But there you stand
Made of love and made of laughter
That no one else could understand

Don’t turn away
As I sing through watercolours
To drown your beauty

And my shame

I hear you now 
Hear the gentle voice 
That sings beside me 


The world turns
The chorus builds
I know that there will be

A summer sky
A field of green
A time to sing of all the wonders we have seen
A fall of rain, a cooling breeze
All at once we’re listening to a whisper
The falling of leaves
No more summertime
Summertime
