Coloured Memories

It was in another lifetime

When we walked together

On the moss

Hope it stretched before us

Beneath the Southern Cross

Blue, the sky explodes above you

Green, the leaves they dapple free

Brown, the earth beneath our feet

Black, the colour of the mud

It was in another lifetime

When we talked together

In the woods

Laughter it sang so sweetly

The wine it tasted good

Blue, the sky explodes above you

Green, the leaves they dapple free

Brown, the earth beneath our feet

Black, the colour of the mud

It was in another lifetime

When we danced together

On the green

Our feet moved so swiftly

Your beauty could be seen

Blue, the sky explodes above you

Green, the leaves they dapple free

Brown, the earth beneath our feet

Black, the colour of the mud

It was in another lifetime

When we drank together

In the yard

Words they flowed so freely

Written upon a card

Blue, the sky explodes above you

Green, the leaves they dapple free

Brown, the earth beneath our feet

Black, the colour of the mud

It was in another lifetime

When we laughed together

By the lake

I told you that I loved you

Was that my last mistake?

Blue, the sky explodes above you

Green, the leaves they dapple free

Brown, the earth beneath our feet

Black, the colour of the mud
