July Afternoon

Album cover for July Afternoon, single by Glen Murrant
July Afternoon (feat. John Westcott on guitars) 

for Shelley

In a big wooden church 
 In a small steel town 
 on the edge of the sea 
 Dressed in a gown 
 and pressed in a suit 
 for all eyes to see 
 An occasion of hope 
 the opening scene  
 of life-long play 
 I've made up my mind 
 No question this time 
 forever I'll stay 
 
 Say you'll marry me, say you will 
 I'll move mountains to hold you 
 I'll be yours 'til the end of time 
 Feel my love all around you 
 
 July afternoon 
 She's white as the moon 
 on the lakes of Bras d'Or 
 I've taken a bride 
 She's here by my side 
 I can't want for more 
 It's taken some time 
 some laughin' some cryin' 
 but now I am sure 
 I look in your eyes 
 I give you my heart 
 I give you my soul 
 
 Say you'll marry me, say you will 
 I'll move mountains to hold you 
 I'll be yours 'til the end of time 
 Feel my love all around you 
 
 In some ancient language 
 lost and long extinct 
 in songs of whales 
 hidden in hieroglyphs, I think 
 there is a word - love 
 wrapped up in math and the missing link 
 there is a word - love 
 
 Say you'll marry me, say you will 
 I'll move mountains to hold you 
 I'll be yours 'til the end of time 
 Feel my love all around you
