Misty morning in the springtime
Close your eyes, crystal eyes
On the darkside let the light shine
Please, please stay with me tonight
These lips will find strawberry wine

I was looking at your window
Lurking there beneath my feet
Cherry apples, long grass meadows
(Searching) I, for dreams in sleep
These lips will find strawberry wine
Misty morning in the springtime
Lurking there beneath your feet
On the darkside let the light shine
Think of me, don't let me keep
These lips will find strawberry wine

    General CommentKevin Shields : It's about how I used to wander up and down this street where this girl lived, who I was obsessed with: my head was full of dreams of her, but all the time the reality of the situation was me tramping up and down this dirty, miserable street.

    General CommentThis song best embodied spring time just turning the corner, that girl you really really loved but couldn't tell anyone, that cool feeling in the air. The jangly, eastern motif guitars are the only link MBV had to the rest of the UK pop scene at the time. Very pop-py but still lovely. It would only get denser and fuzzier from here.

    My Interpretationmisty morning in the springtime
    cold and crystal eyes
    on the dark side where the light shines
    please stay with me tonight
    these lips will find strawberry wine

    i was looking at your window
    broken glass beneath my feet
    cherry apples, long grass meadows
    close your eyes for dreams in sleep
    these lips will find strawberry wine

    misty morning in the springtime
    broken glass beneath your feet
    on the dark side let the light shine
    think of me, don't let me sleep
    these lips will find strawberry wine
