Stockton Gala Days Lyrics

by 10,000 Maniacs

That summer fields grew high with foxglove stalks and ivy
Wild apple blossoms everywhere emerald green like none I have seen
Apart from dreams that escape me there was no girl as warm as you

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need
You'll never, you'll never know

The summer fields grow high we made garland crowns in hiding
Pulled stems of flowers from my hair blue in the stream like none
I have seen apart from dreams that escape me
There was no girl as bold as you

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need
You'll never, you'll never know, you'll never know

Violet serene like none
I have set apart from dreams that escape me
There was no girl as warm as you

How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need
You'll never, you'll never know, you'll never know
How I've learned to please, to doubt myself in need
You'll never, you'll never know, you'll never know

That summer fields grow high we had wildflower fever
We had to lay down where they grow
How I've learned to hide, how I've locked inside
You'd be surprised if shown but you'll never, you'll never know
Oh, you'll never, never know

How I've learned to hide, how I've locked inside
You'd be surprised if shown but you'll never, you'll never know
