Lyrics

The sun is shining on the ground
I see that nothing makes a sound
I move, invisible as air
And choose the time to disappear

Ah ah ah ah
I'm in love with you

The spirits started long ago
They've found somewhere they couldn't go
They spend their time just looking out
For those who never share a doubt

Ah ah ah ah
They're in love with you

The seagull on the seeping sand
Can die but never understand
The oil that festers on our shore
Will cast a stain forevermore

Ah ah ah ah
Who's in love with that?

Gnomes are moving through the night
They sing and fiddle with delight
And we eat Weetabix and sing
About the joys that love can bring

Ah ah ah ah
If they ever come
Ah ah ah ah
If they ever come

The sun is shining very hard
It melts both margarine and lard
But me I only dream of you
I hope that you are dreaming too

Ah ah ah ah
I'm in love with you
Ah ah ah ah
I'm in love with you
Ah ah ah ah
I'm in love with you

Oh

<Alternates>
And every place they couldn't be  9a
They found another piece of me   10a
