Lovesick on a sunny afternoon
You are tired of staying in
You are waiting for the time

Mayfly, woken up when skys are clear
I don't mind you coming near
Keep me company till she comes again

You are the one who's making do, I am the one who's privy to
'Cause you saw him in the park
'Cause you saw him at the bridges with the people in the park

Cana was the start of something big
You were there in the beginning
You were there to see him play

Mayfly, woken up when skys are blue
I don't mind the sight of you
Keep me company till she comes again

You are the one who's making do, I am the one who's privy to
'Cause you saw him at the celebrations standing at the side
He had the moves to save the day and you would love him anyway

Lovesick, it came back upon yourself
You are the one that done the shelf
You are incapable of playing the fool

Longing so what's different today
You sent the boy and girl away
You are concerned with matters lofty

That puzzled so it makes you sick
Your diary's looking like a Bible with it's verses lost in time
Lost in meaning for the people who surround you it's a crying shame
You know it's a crying shame, you know it's a crying shame

Mayfly, woken up when skys are blue
I don't mind the sight of you
Keep me company till she comes again

Mayfly, woken up when skys are clear
I don't mind you coming near
Keep me company till she comes again
La, la, la, la she comes again, la, la, la, la she comes again
La, la, la, la, la
