April Come She Will Lyrics
When streams are ripe and swelled with rain;
May, she will stay,
Resting in my arms again.
June, she'll change her tune,
In restless walks she'll prowl the night;
July, she will fly
And give no warning to her...

Just an allegory for the growth, life, and death of a brief love affair, expressed through the months from spring (April) to fall, and in a cold climate at that, since autumn winds are blowing chilly and cold in August.

He meets her in April and they fall on love, in May their love is pure and she is happy, in June she grows restless and seeks another, in July she leaves him, in August he admits to himself she is gone forever in September he reflects on the short love affair and losing her

Everything is temporarily.
I believe one of the participants nailed it - the life of a butterfly and the love of a woman. Regardless, there are no right or wrong answers for this beautifully composed song (artists that pen these kind of songs want your forever contemplation). While you are doing that, simply float away like a butterfly to the beautiful melody of this song and think about how that (she comes but once in a lifetime) woman slipped through your grasp. You're not alone though, many of us yearn for one more "forever" glance into her heavenly eyes and perhaps one more soulful embrace.

It's about the yearly new nature appearance of life, in the water, on land and in the air.

The life of a dandelion flower. Paul should have said that in a late night show

The dynamic between AG and PS is a mystery to me. Do they rehearse? Do they just walk on stage and sing these songs?

A bird. Comes in the spring, leaves in the winter.
