FLICKER

FLICKER THE LIGHT OF THE CAMPFIRE,
WIND IN THE PINES,
STARS IN THE HEAVENS
A MOON THAT SHINES,
A PLACE WHERE PEOPLE GATHER,
MEET FRIENDS OF ALL KINDS,
A PLACE WHERE OLD MAN TROUBLE IS ALWAYS LEFT BEHIND.
SO GIVE ME THE LIGHT OF THE CAMPFIRE
WARM AND BRIGHT
AND GIVE ME SOME FRIENDS TO SING WITH, I'LL BE HERE ALL NIGHT,
FOR LOVE IS FOR THOSE WHO FIND IT
I FOUND MINE RIGHT HERE,
JUST YOU AND ME AND THE CAMPFIRE
AND THE SONGS WE LOVE TO HEAR.
GREEN ARE THE VALLEYS
SWEET IS THE CLOVER,
GONE ARE THE COLD WINDS FOREVER MORE,
THE ROSES NOW ARE BLOOMING,
THE OCEAN SO BLUE,
THE SUN ABOVE IS SETTING,
UPON OUR LOVE SO NEW,
FOR LOVE IS LIKE A WARM FIRE
SOFT AND LOW
AND WHEN YOU FIND YOUR TRUE LOVE
YOUR HEART WILL KNOW
AND AS THE LEAVES START FALLING
AND FRIENDS BEGIN TO PART
THESE MEMORIES OF THE SUMMER
WILL STAY IN EVERY HEART.
