As I sit and watch
The summertime,
And the shadow of
The cranes.
By the branches of
The cedar tree
And the beating of
The day.

You are the rose
Within my soul.
You are the reason
Why the wind blows.
By the meeting of
The roads
I will hold you
In my arms again.

And we'll sit under
The cedar tree
As the city
Fades away.
By the places
Where the blossom falls
And the shadow of
The cranes.

You are the rose
Within my soul,
You are the reason
Why the rain flows.
By the meeting of
The roads
I will hold you
In my arms again.

By the branches of
The cedar tree,
There's a bench
Beside the lake.
Take the bridge
Over the Serpentine,
And I'll see you
Once again.

    General CommentA very nice song that pictures a very beautiful scene, which could be interpreted in many ways.
    i love the "I'll see you once again" bit which leaves you quite sad at the end of the album
