Colours

Lost among the brambles
Those long cross country rambles
Your hands stained red
From blackberry picking

Brave or was it foolish?
You took off all your clothes
Your lips turned blue
From north sea swimming

Colours, colours of the summer
My thoughts are drawn to you still
The red kite against the blue sky
My thoughts are drawn to you still

Race down Chimney Bank
Faster than legs can carry you
Your knees are green
From the tripping and the falling

Nothing to disturb us
Collapsed among the cord
The hazy gold
Of a lazy summer

Colours, colours of the summer
My thoughts are drawn to you still
The red kite against the blue sky
My thoughts are drawn to you still

Colours, flash before us, flash before us, flash before…etc
