pure, by the lightning seeds

Just a short assignment today.

Came back across Lightning Seeds. Sweet, silly, soul-tugging Lighting Seeds. Desperately wanted to use "Pure" in my snow-stomping IG story today but alas, it's unavailable. So that's your assignment. You must either watch the video or read the lyrics, below. 

It's such a confection. 

 

Nighttime slows

Raindrops splash rainbows

Perhaps someone you know

Could sparkle and shine

As daydreams slide

To color from shadow

Picture the moon glow

That dazzles my eyes

And I love you

Just lying smiling in the dark

Shooting stars around your heart

Dreams come bouncing in your head

Pure and simple every time

Now you're crying in your sleep

I wish you'd never learnt to weep

Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping

Pure and simple every time

Dream of sights

Of sleigh rides in seasons

Where feelings not reasons

Can make you decide

As leaves pour down

Splash autumn on gardens

As colder nights harden

Their moonlit delights

And I love you

Just lying smiling in the dark

Shooting stars around your heart

Dreams come bouncing in your head

Pure and simple every time

Now you're crying in your sleep

I wish you'd never learnt to weep

Don't sell the dreams you should be keeping

Pure and simple every time

Look at me with starry eyes

Push me up to starry skies

The starburst in my head

Pure and simple every time

Fresh and deep as oceans new

Shiver at the sight of you

I'll sing a song to tune

Pure and simple, over you

If love's the truth then live no lies

And let me swim around your eyes

I found the place I'll never leave

Shut my mouth and just believe

Love is the truth I realize

Not a stream of pretty lies

That uses up and wastes our time
