St John's Lock

Sun shines warm upon your upturned face
We share the beauty of this time and place
Feeling everything heed the call of spring

The light on the water, the sun in the sky
The beat of my heart and the look in your eye
.

Hear the passage of the wandering breeze
Stir the music of the willow trees
And they take their chance to join the dance

Of the light on the water, the sun in the sky
The beat of my heart and the look in your eye
.

Smell of meadow grass and hawthorn flowers
No-one's waiting and the world is ours
We've got time to spare in the scented air

Blackbird singing out with all his might
Cuckoo sounding somewhere out of sight
And the meadows ring with the songs of spring

Oh the light on the water, the sun in the sky
The beat of my heart and the look in your eye
.
