Artist: Fish

This song is a cover of Lavender by Marillion.

I was walking in the park
Dreamin' 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 rainbow
They were singing a song for you
Well it seemed to be a song for you
The one I wanted to write
For you
Only for you

Lavender's blue, dilly dilly
Lavender's green
When I am King, dilly dilly
You'll be my Queen
A penny for your thoughts my dear
A penny for your thoughts my dear
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love

Lavender's green, dilly dilly
Lavender's 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
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love
For your love
For your love
Always for your love
It is always for your love
For your love
For your love

The sky was Bible black in Lyon
When I met the Magdalene
She was paralysed in a streetlight
She refused to give her name

And a ring of violet bruises
They were pinned upon her arm
Two hundred francs for sanctuary
And she led me by the hand

J'entends ton coeur
J'entends ton coeur
I can hear your heart
I can hear your heart
I can hear your heart

Lavender's green, dilly dilly
Lavender 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
I owe you for your love
I owe you for your love
For your love
Oh your love
For your love

I was walkin' in the park
Dreamin' of a spark
When I heard the sprinklers whisper
Shimmer in the haze of summer lawns
Then I heard the children sing
They were running through the rainbow
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
For you
This is for you
For your love
