Easter Parade

Album: A Walk Across the Rooftops (1984)
  • The line of traffic comes to a stand still
    For the love King, out in the morning air
    I find a place I started from
    The wild is calling, this time I follow
    Easter parade
    In the bureau typewriter's quiet
    Confetti falls from every window
    Throwing hats up in the air
    A city perfect in every detail
    Easter parade
    I know you, birthday cards and silent music
    Paperbacks and Sunday clothes
    In hallways and railway stations
    Radio across the morning air
    A crowd of people everywhere
    And then the people, all running forward
    Easter parade Writer/s: PAUL GERARD BUCHANAN, ROBERT BELL
