Spring Color

Spring Color Project 1993
Produced by Ian Townend


I actually began writing this song taking a walk on a long country road next to a farmer's field not too far from our former house in Meridian. I was captivated by the newness of the virgin grass pushing its way up through the soil. This song echoes the feelings I have toward keeping a dream alive (a vision for the future) in one's life.  Like the early signs of Spring that stir new hope after the long hardship of winter, the ability in the human spirit to rise up out of darkness and begin yet again, even against all odds, is such a gift. 

(The lovely alto harmony is sung by Marla Blaser.)



April Colors / Early March Tell me what the chances are

that my April colors bloom and star with Spring color how I love Spring color

Rather risky this early Spring causing my heart and the birds to sing

or will Winter wind come claim everything with his icy fingers and steal away Spring Color

Have you ever seen pristine virgin green The color of my dreams – Spring Color

Purist angel white like blossoms in moonlight Oh, the perfect sight – Spring Color

If I could paint my innermost dreams

I’d have to start with the color of green of the leaves on the trees at the earliest sight of Spring

I have a fancy that hope would be white somewhat like the glow of warm candlelight

Angels in flight – you almost see them – not quite

Hopes and dreams are painted in Spring Color Crystal clear in vision become

I have come from underneath Winter’s frozen cover In fertile soil, cleansing rain and sun

Purple rain clouds / Rich brown earth Shades of yellow proclaim rebirth

Second chances just like the first

There’s reassurance in the appearing of Spring Color

Crystal clear rebirthing of my dreams
