I was walking in the park…

I was walking in the park…

This one takes me back. It’s Marillion, Fish-era, performing the Misplaced Childhood album live. Lavender, the song below, was always one of my favorite Fish lyrics. The first verse is just so bloody evocative to me. Anyway, here’s the video (from the Loreley concert).

 

I was walking in the park dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you, for you

Lavenders blue, dilly dilly, lavenders green
When I am King, dilly dilly, you will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I.O.U. for your love, IOU for your love

Lavenders green, dilly dilly, lavenders blue
When you love me, dilly dilly, I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
IOU for your love, IOU for your love

For your love
