lyrics

APRIL
MATTHEW LEE HILL
Until you came along I'd been a little vague
my window clouded by the fog machine
I've never seen true love so nicely codified
I know you take me back to a place I haven't seen
When we first met we said "I don't know what I want"
both afraid to dance that grim ballet
if you're still looking for a vision or a sign,
I've got a picture that'll make you wanna stay
Imagine all her loose associations
The warm and hazy memories of youth
This sunlight will be mine and it could be yours as well
Her laughter ringing out as clear as a bell

April, April,
Funny that we've never met,
She hasn't been invented yet,
as far as I know,
April, April,
stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

After all this time we've spent without a care
I find myself desiring something more
I know it's easy to pretend that I'm alright
to tell the truth I'm just as bad off as before
I'm lazing and I’m rotting before a glowing screen
a product of the information age
My debilitating tendency to pry
makes me a victim of the dreadful chronophage

Running as if on a treadmill, haunted by the beast,
I can sense the awful milestone coming fast
But I can see her at the end of the hall
I hope to goodness I'll be right after all

April, April,
she's the one who makes me dance
and love with such significance,
the spring in my walk
April, April,
stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

Since you've up and gone I've been a little down
wondering just how she'll come to be
The mess inside my room is growing all the time
the clothes all piling up but it seems all right to me
I feel like saying that I don't know what I want
but the image is abundantly clear
I can almost hear a voice that tells me to proceed
but I know it’s not the specter's job to interfere

I wonder if the shadow of my opus
made you wander off amidst the wolves
I've got to rectify my place as a man
creation is my duty so I'll do what I can

April, April,
never known her company,
but she blows away the misery,
all the same
April, April,
Stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see

April, April,
funny that we've never met,
she hasn't been invented yet,
as far as I know
April, April,
Stormy little cloud of mine,
destinies are intertwined,
wait and see
