Ribbon Road lyrics


A Lovely Day

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day
it's the end of a day
it's been a lovely day

I walk across the fields tonight, it's quiet and it's cool
the sky becomes an ocean as it gives up to the blue
I give myself to thinking as the sun dips down her head
I wish that I was different, but I always make my bed

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day

the air is scented hawthorn and the hedgerow's like a bride
the wedding laid about me in dark and thorny pride
I give myself to dreaming, what's a dreamer left to do
I wish that I was different 'cos it makes me such a fool

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day
it's the end of a day
it's been a lovely day

I walk across these fields tonight with memory in my tread
the paths are worn forever so much inside my head
I give myself to everything and do the best I can
but I was born a woman and you were born a man

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day

walk with me across the fields and maybe you will see
the sky become the ocean, reaching out to me
the roadside blushing roses blowing kisses on the breeze
fools are made of promises, and I no more than these

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day
it's the end of a day
it's been a lovely day

it's the end of a day
such a lovely day
it's the end of a day
it's the end of a lovely, lovely,
such a lovely, lovely day
