In the long light of early July
In the summer heat he asked me to be his wife
He said, take my hand and for the rest of my life
I'll be at your side
It's you and me in the by and by

He said, long have you been a bud in bloom
With sunkissed, blushing ivory croon
So let the wind whip the green grass into dunes
My love for you runs through and through
Forever cannot come too soon

The summer left and came November clouds
And when it all had fallen to the ground
Waiting for the sun to come back around
I meant to lift him up, not tie him down
I am lost but once was found

Good times, they came and went away
By and by we began to fray
And it was clear to see that he had swayed
That first summer seemed so far away
But I'm still here and not afraid

So wind whip the green grass into dunes
Forever's fading out of view
My ivory skin still croons
My love for him goes through and through

He's had my hand and then he set it free
Still got my heart hidden away from me
I can't walk away, I won't let it be
My love is under lock and key
My love is under lock and key
My love is under lock and key
