"Spring" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
So Spring is in her belly,
It's sprouted in her soul,
And no one had to tell us,
We did just know.
And know life seems a little more, somehow,
Meaningful
And I looked at her like I always do and I see,
Beautiful

Just the thought of you changed us,
I remember exactly when,
But as soon as you say hello,
You say goodbye again,
And now she feels abandoned,
Forgotten and betrayed,
Well there ain't nothing I can do,
There's nothing I can say.

But,
Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you,
When will our paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.

Thought I'd like to meet you,
See what you looked like,
I bet you look like your mother,
Boy, you'd be shining in the light,
But your not coming out to play,
Not tomorrow or tonight,
And now I hold her crying
Yes I hold her body tight.
Yes I hold her body tight.

And I say,
Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you,
When will our paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.
Don't go away so soon,
I'm hopin' to meet you
When will out paths cross again?
I know we'll be the best of friends.

Now its a month since your visit
And your memory lingers on,
Somehow feels like your around,
Even though I know your gone
And in these times when you feel so low
Ain't nothing you can do
But we're still thankful for your visit
'Cause we changed cause of you,
Yeah we changed cause of you.

    General CommentI think this is about John and his ex-partner. I think she miscarried their child, and in the song he is saying how hurt they are to lose him but so grateful for how it changed them

    General CommentWow, I cried when I listened to this song. It's truly beautiful. I feel so sorry of anyone who has to go through that serious loss. It's amazing how he manages to describe that series of emotional changes that a person goes through. The happiness of knowing she's pregnant, to the sadness with the loss.

    General CommentI don't think he ever did divorce, but I never knew that his wife miscarried their first child, I just thought this song was about his daughter, Banjo. However, the miscarrying idea does make sense. Great song musically.
