Wind-blown lovers

The poplar tree is waving at two clouds that wander by
A pair of wind-blown lovers on the glowing blue washed sky

I closed my eyes last evening and I kissed you in my bed
As we went walking slowly past the river in my head
The water whispered softly as it brushed a willow tree
And breezes filled with jasmine blew your wishes into me
I felt the way you worried and the way you let things go
You whispered words inside me that were all that I should know

The poplar tree is waving at two clouds that wander by
A pair of wind-blown lovers on the glowing blue washed sky

I sighed with you last evening as we watched the moon and stars
The birds were silent roosters who had said their au revoirs
The only sounds around us were the lovesongs of the mind
And our thoughts were intermingled as our bodies were entwined
We waltzed across a meadow where the grass was soft as air
And felt the weight of lifetimes slip away from everywhere

The poplar tree is waving at two clouds that wander by
A pair of wind-blown lovers on the glowing blue washed sky

I thought of you last evening as I drifted off to sleep
A daydream of a lover makes more sense than counting sheep
And though I lay here lonely I was soon there at your side
Holding hands and breathing deeply on a gentle fairground ride
And now that I have woken to an English summer’s day
I’m still asleep beside you in some dream so far away

The poplar tree is waving at two clouds that wander by
A pair of wind-blown lovers on the glowing blue washed sky
