Step into spring

When the springtime arrives like broadband in far- flung coastal towns
When April arrives like second-hand smoke on the cycle paths
When the days fall away like blossom on frosted cracked paving stone pathways in a moderate breeze
Feels like we’re running out of space to step into…

Step into spring everybody
Step into spring everybody
And when the colours fade like inkjet posters in the sunlight it’s time to
Step into spring everybody

When the music fades like the last southbound train disappearing
And when the hours pass by like infinite strangers on the down escalators
When the days fall away like coins from the hands of children and the superstitious
Into the water features of faded shopping centre atriums

Step into spring everybody
Step into spring everybody
And when the colours fade like butterflies on a wall-mounted frame
It’s time to step into spring everybody

And when the music fades like the last southbound train disappearing
It’s time to step into spring everybody
