April gave us springtime and the promise of the flowers
And the feeling that we both shared and the love that we called ours
We had no time for sadness, that's a road we each had crossed
We were living a time meant for us, and even when it would rain
we would laugh it off.

I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet
I've got pieces of April, but it's a morning in May

We stood on the crest of summer, beneath an oak that blossemed green
Feeling as I did in April, not really knowing what it means
But it must be then that you stand beside me now to make me feel this way
Just as I did in April, but it's a morning in May.

I've got pieces of April, I keep them in a memory bouquet
I've got pieces of April, but it's a morning in May

    General Comment:Why hasn't anyone commented on this lyrically and instrumentally moving song!!?? I think it's about love, lost and remembered. April is most likely the month in which his lover left him (separation or death may have taken her). It's morning now, but he is still torn up about his loss.

    General Comment:I don't see this as love lost, more like an oak that's blossomed green. Remembering then, now is just as good.

    General Comment:My favorite love song I believe it's about a man who had the greatest love of his life and by the next month she either left him or died but he still remembers the month before when they were together as the most memorable time of his life. I love this song I know it word for word I sing it all the time in my honest opinion my favorite three dog night song as well as chuck negron's greatest song he was the best member of three dog night.
