the day, i met marie lyrics – cliff richard

imagine a still summer’s day
when nothing is moving,
least of all me.
i lay on my back in the hay,
the warm sun was soothing.
it made me feel good …

the day i met marie.
the sound of her whisper “h*llo”
came tiptoeing softly into my head.
i opened my eyes kinda slow,
and there she was smiling.
it made me feel good …

the day i met marie.
with laughing eyes,
she’d toss her hair and tantalize.
she came to touch me then she’s gone,
just like a summer breeze.

i remember her kiss,
so soft on my brow,
and the way that she said,
“baby go to sleep now,
baby go to sleep now.”

i woke with the chill in the air,
the warm sun no longer hung in the sky.
i reached out but she was not there.
she’d gone where she came from,
but i still feel good,

to think i’ve known marie.
with laughing eyes,
she’d toss her hair and tantalize.
she came to touch me then she’s gone,
just like a summer breeze.
