Ο Captain αναπολεί τον εφηβικό του έρωτα, σε ένα τραγούδι από το κλασικό άλμπουμ – ντεμπούτο του, Safe As Milk.

The Captain looks back to his teenage love, on a song from his classic debut album, Safe As Milk.

❝ Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams dancing round
Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams dancing down
Autumn’s child, autumn’s child
Autumn’s child
Got a loophole round her finger
Halo rings her head
Corn husk hair makes me linger
A cat’s stare meet s my dare
A man’s chair greets my stare
Gonna be my wife
She sang, she said
Gonna be my wife gonna
Spice my life, she said
Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams everywhere
Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams fill the air
Harvest moon be nimble
Apples bob and tremble
Fish pond streaks love kind
Found the child I have to find
Apples shine share together
Got the time to make her mine
Fish pond streaks love kind
Found the child I had to find
Autumn’s child, I met her
At a balloon bust picnic
She caught me
With the beauty queen
With jade green eyes buttons
And bows and fancy ties
The feet of dust under trees of rust
Make them sandals gambol under knees of trust
Gonna be my wife
Gonna spice my life
She sang she said
Gonna be my wife
Gonna spice my life
She said
Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams shining down
Go back ten years ago
Sunbeams glancin’ round
Autumn’s child ❞

Enjoy!
