(CAPO @ III)

Am Dm G7

One day you wake, you look around, the world is like a flower,

You take a deep breath, lift your face up to the gentle wind.

You touch my hand, you smile, I feel that in this hour,

Creation's dormant spirit is awakening.

   The new day's just begun,

   The leaves unfold the seventh day of spring.

   Long winter days are done,

   You are a blossom and I am a king.

 

Like many men before me I have come to America,

Epitome of every human flowering.

My dreams my hopes summed up in just one word America

In  you forever all men find their wings.

   My new life's just begun,

   On seventh hour of the seventh day of spring.

   Long winter days are done,

   America my love, of thee I sing.

 

My kingdom's infinite and it's been thus forever,

I know not when it ends, not where it does begin.

Immortal as I am I hoist the flag of never,

The master that makes all that's verdant green.

 

    INSTR.

 

I pause one million years to contemplate your nature,

In retrospect it feels just like an hour's fling.

Your essence still eludes me you hermetic creature,

Yet innocently you just keep on flowering.

  A new age's just begun,

  It's seventh hour of the seventh day of spring.

  Long winter days are done,

  You are a blossom and ... I am but a king.
