Picture The Moon Glow That Dazzles My Eyes

Today’s Song Lyric Sunday theme has given me chance to reminisce over a band who provided me with many enjoyable evenings, relaxing with a glass of Chardonnay and contemplating the wonders of life. There was a time (I think back in the nineties) when I used to adore The Lightning Seeds. Their song “Perfect” is still one of my favourite all-time songs, and I am sure their contribution to football anthems will keep their names in stone for a long time. I can still remember them providing the soundtrack for some very happy evenings with friends.

This particular song “Pure” from The Lightning Seeds (a Liverpool band), I have chosen because the lyrics are simply lovely. It was a track from their debut album “Cloudcuckooland“. It was the first song written and sung by Ian Broudie. He was already firmly planted in the music industry, having played with several bands and an experienced producer. So it was quite exciting when he started to record music alone. And we were blessed with some fantastic music as a result.

This particular track – you may or may not enjoy the arrangement – but read the lyrics – they are sheer loveliness.

Night time slows, raindrops splash rainbows
Perhaps someone you know could sparkle and shine
As the 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 learned 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 learned 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
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple every time

Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you

If love's the truth then look no lies
And let me swim around your eyes
I've found a place I'll never leave
Shut my mouth and just believe
Love is the truth, I realize
Not a stream of pretty lies
To use us up and waste our time

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 learned 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
There's stardust in my head
Pure and simple every time

Fresh and deep as oceans new
Shiver at the sight of you
I'll sing a softer tune
Pure and simple over you
Pure and simple just for you
