lyrics

April Is My Friend

April is my friend, she says it’s time to clean the windows
And if I go outside then I will know which way the wind blows
And I will see more clearly all the beauty that surrounds me
Let love and grace draw near me, life can still astound me

Oh April is a pretty sight, she blossoms in the morning
She welcomes strangers with delight, she doesn’t need fair warning
She weathers sun and snow and rain
Goes out to sow her seeds again
The scent of summer just around the bend
April is my friend

April is my friend, she talks of Paris and of lovers
And things that I’ve got stashed away in boxes and in cupboards
A change round here would do you good, make you feel much better
She promises to help me, if only I would let her

Oh April is a pretty sight, she blossoms in the morning
She welcomes strangers with delight, she doesn’t need fair warning
She weathers sun and snow and rain
Goes out to sow her seeds again
The scent of summer just around the bend
April is the smell of freshly painted walls
The hyacinth here in the hall
The precious things we took the time to mend

April is my friend
And if it showers I’ll be fine
Give or take a day or two I know the sun will shine

April is my friend, she sits upon the windowsill
She’s asking me so beautifully, that in the end I say April I will
