Lyrics

April - Thomas Aaron Garlow - © 1971
April came with the wind in her hair
On a thunder cloud up in the morning sky
Rain drops were falling all around
And the stars brought a twinkle to April's eyes.

The time for love was in the air
And the lightning lit the sky without a sound
Her arms embraced all the world
And flowers were blooming from the ground.

April, you a queen, you're a miracle
You're everything that anyone ever needs
April you soothed my weary mind
You listened to my songs and set me free
You're everything I hear and feel and see.

April, you made my life complete
You calmed my restless wandering soul
I loved you more than you'll know
And now your gone and the weather's growing cold.

April, you're a song, your a miracle
You're everything that anyone ever needs
April you soothed my weary mind
You listened to my songs and set me free
You're everything I hear and feel and see.

April went with the wind in her hair
On a thunder cloud up in the morning sky
Rain drops were falling all around
And the stars brought a twinkle to April's eyes.
