lyrics

ALREADY APRIL

Already April
And are the flowers
Yet in bloom
And are lovers giddy yet
With their perfume
And do the days
Pretend they’re June?

Already April
And how the years all slip away
Seems like only yesterday
I was still young
The taste of blondes
Fresh on my tongue
And you were late
And I thought you wouldn’t come

Of course I knew you’d walk away
Before the wheat was grown
Before the Summer came and went
In waves of storm and stone
And you would tell me love was just
A tale of skin and bone
But cut my tongue and watch me die
For other women I have known

Already April
And do the birds
Sing out again
Do blossom branches sway
Do children play
In puddles left
Out in the rain?

Already April
Another time, another day
Another life a world away
I was still young
The thrill of love
Danced on my tongue
And you appeared
Blinking into the sun

Of course I knew you’d walk away
Before the wheat was grown
Before the Summer came and went
In waves of storm and stone
And you would tell me love was just
A tale of skin and bone
But cut my tongue and watch me die
For other women I have known

I still find you in my grey hairs
I still see you in my scars
I hear you in the silence
Of early morning bars
I hail you from the pulpits
Of the gutters to the stars
A dream too far
And here we are
Already April
