easy day in spring


©1998 rené obi

sitting by the lake, nothing to do
thinking ‘bout my life, once again
looking at the ducks, the swans on the water
looking at the seagulls flying in the air
it’s an easy day, it’s an easy day

a warming sun and a smooth cool wind
sailing boats slowly sailing by
the lights on the water playing funny games
with the clouds up in the sky
it’s an easy day, it’s an easy day

ref.    
winter’s over summer hasn’t started yet
it’s the time I was dreaming of for quite a long time
no more freezing no more cold
life is starting again - easily

couples in love wandering by, arm in arm, kissing
children playing and running and laughing
an old man on a bench, sitting and watching
with a smile on his face, like me
it’s an easy day, it’s an easy day

winter’s over summer hasn’t started yet
it’s the time I was dreaming of for quite a long time
no more freezing no more cold
life is starting again - easily

sitting by the lake, nothing do do
trying hard not to think of you
the warming sun and the smooth cool wind
and I’m feeling like flying away
it’s an easy day, it’s an easy day

winter’s over summer hasn’t started yet
it’s the time I was dreaming of for quite a long time
no more crying no more longing for you
life has started again - easily
