The Girl With April In Her Eyes Lyrics

The Girl With April In Her Eyes - Chris De Burgh

There once was a king who called for the spring

 

For his world was still covered with snow

 

But the spring had not been for he was wicked and mean

 

In his winter fields nothing would grow

 

And when a traveller called seeking help at the door

 

Only food and a bed for a night

 

He ordered his slave to turn her away

 

The girl with April in her eyes

 

Oh oh oh on and on she goes

 

Through the winter's night the wild wind and the snow

 

Hi hi hi on and on she rides

 

Someone help the girl with April in her eyes

 

She rode through the night till she came to the light

 

Of a humble man's home in the woods

 

He brought her inside by the firelight she died

 

And he buried her gently and good

 

Oh the morning was bright all the world snow-white

But when he came to the place where she lay

 

His field was ablaze with flowers on the grave

Of the girl with April in her eyes

 

Oh oh oh on and on she goes

 

Through the winter's night the wild wind and the snow

 

Hi hi hi on and on she flies

 

 

She is gone the girl with April in her eyes
