"April 5th" as written by Mark David Hollis and Timothy Alan Friese-greene....
Here she comes
Silent in her sound
Here she comes
Fresh upon the ground
Come gentle spring
Come at winter's end
Gone is the pallor from a promise that's nature's gift
Waiting for the color of spring
Let me breathe
Let me breathe the color of spring
Here she comes
Laughter in her kiss
Here she comes
Shame upon her lips
Come wanton spring
Come for birth you live
Youth takes it's bow before the summer the seasons bring
Waiting for the color of spring
Let me
Let me breathe
Let me breathe you
Let me breathe
Let me breathe you
Let me breathe

    It is a work of pure beauty. Pure humanism and harmony. It is the sound of nature's swelling tide. And when you see it in your mind, it is the colour of spring!

    In my opinion, this *is the track of the record, from which the rest of the album revolves around. God bless Mark Hollis for his work, wherever he may be.

    My InterpretationColour of Spring is an intensely personal collection of songs. I picked it up in the late 80s after my girlfriend and I had broken up. So my memories of it are tainted by my experience, as everyone's opinions are formed by their experiences.

    I don't think there is any coincidence that "spring" is referred to here as a female with "shame upon her lips". There may have been another bad breakup here. The whole album is a journey thru sadness, maybe depression, with the final song "Time it's Time" as the upbeat pep talk to get on with life ("Rest your head").

    April 5th is a song about waiting for a rebirth (like spring) to happen so the person can live again. He's going to make a simple start to just breathe, like taking in that first inhale of cold fresh air in the spring. The gray winter is over.
