Once upon a long time ago 
He found April dancing in the snow 
Moving gracefully without any care 
Winter flowers in her long blonde hair 

She took him sliding across a lake of ice 
She smelt of springtime breeze and cinnamon spice 
As she moved close he felt the warmth of her skin 
And he forgot the frozen water was thin 

CHORUS: Sing him a song about a sad November 
Tell him a story about a hot July 
Though he tries to move on he can’t help but remember 
Things like flowers in long hair and April in December 

April gave him her fresh kiss of spring 
Then she laughed just like a wild thing 
Started spinning across the frost covered blue 
Before he knew it they were falling through 

He woke up in a bed of snow 
How he got there he’ll never know 
All he was left with was a cold heartache 
And winter flowers floating on a lake 


Winter flies and April appears 
Every night he drowns himself in his tears 
Cinnamon spice changes to springtime air 
But April ain’t April if April ain’t there 


(music and lyrics by M. James)
