"Lavender" as written by Derek William Dick, Mark Kelly, Ian Mosley, Steve Rothery and Pete Trewavas....
I was walking in the park dreaming of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children singing
They were running through the rainbows
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write for you, for you
Lavenders blue, dilly dilly, lavenders green
When I am King, dilly dilly, you will be Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I.O.U. for your love, IOU for your love
Lavenders green, dilly dilly, lavenders blue
When you love me, dilly dilly, I will love you
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
IOU for your love, IOU for your love
For your love

    General CommentOn the version, which is off the Misplaed Childhood album. I have it then goes on to say:

    Lavender dreams, dilly dilly, lavender's true,
    When you miss me, dilly dilly, I will miss you.
    A penny for your thoughts my dear, A penny for your thoughts my dear,
    I.O.U. for your love, I.O.U. for your love.
    For your love, for your love, for your love.

    Oh I'm gonna give it back to you.
    I'm gonna give it back to you.
    Gonna finally give it back to you [not sure that's right]
    For your love, for your love, for your love.

    I'm always walking in the park,
    Always dreaming of a spark, from you.

    But yeah, it's an amazing song, obviously about love. The reference to the children's song makes it seem so innocent and pure. It's got such an obvious meaning but never fails to make me think.
