From the recording All The Fourth Songs (so far)

Lyrics

Love is a much maligned word
But it’s still going strong
After all this time
And you are often on my mind
It’s not just the wine
Writing this song for you

Oh if I could I’d fly
A banner so high
Behind a little airplane
In the sky

I thank you
For your kindness
I thank you
For your kiss
I thank you
For the times when you stayed true
I thank you

Love is a complicated tune
And we still sing along
After all this time
But I can’t always manage to find
The words to rhyme
The way I’d like them to

Oh if could I’d sing
A tune that flies
Like a skylark soaring high up
In the sky

I thank you
For your kindness
I thank you
For your kiss
I thank you
For the times when you stayed true
I thank you

It doesn’t take the colours of the rainbow
To make me feel the way I do
I could use a thousand words to paint you
Though these simple lines reveal the truth

I thank you
For your kindness
I thank you
For your kiss
I thank you
For the times when you stayed true

I thank you
