"Wake Up April" as written by and Daniel John/von Bohlen Didier....
Wake up April it'll be summer soon
And you'll be sipping your morning coffee in the afternoon
You're walking slowly because there's nowhere to go
But your heart keeps beating so so so
Everyone in the neighborhood
Wishes you well as much as any person could
It's a friendly forever in a forgotten now
So when we don't remember we won't know how
Wake up April it?s been one cruel year
And we all feel better knowing that you're back here
You wouldn't believe it so I might as well lie
But I almost had to say goodbye

Wake up America now they're setting me free
I've been the next big thing since I can remember me
But I'd take the light air of permanent care
Before perfect hair and heavy stares

There's a break in the choir double wide
We slipped outside
Now out the back door two wide

    General CommentI love this song. My favourite part is the end when he sings 'there's a break in the choir, double wide, we slipped outside' it is so beautiful! His voice sounds so lush!

    General Commenti have to say this is the most comfortable easy going song on the cd. i feel so at peace with everything when i listen to this song. the song hardly makes sense, at best you can see what he means (if you pay attention, like all promise ring songs as well as Cap'n Jazz songs.) i love this song, great song

    General CommentI like how he personified the Springtime, April really. He makes it almost as if it's this person he's happy is back. In a sense, maybe this person only does come around once a year and he cherishes the oppurtunity to be with it.
