It’s up in the morning
It’s on the downs
Little white clouds
Like gambolling lambs
And I am a breathless over you
And the red-breasted robin beats his wings
His throat it trembles when he sings
For he is helpless before you

And the happy hooded bluebells bow
And they bend their heads all a-down
Heavied by the early morning dew
At the whispering stream
At the bubbling brook
The fishes leap up to take a look
For they are breathless over you
Still your hands
And still your heart
For still your face
Comes shining through
And all the morning glows anew
Still your mind
Still your soul
For still the fire of love is true
And I am breathless without you

The wind circles among the trees
And it bangs about the new-made leaves
For it is breathless without you
And the fox chases the rabbit round
The rabbit hides beneath the ground
For he is defenceless without you
The sky of daytime dies away and all the earthly things
They stop to play
For we are all breathless without you
I listen to my juddering bones
And the blood in my veins
And the wind in my lungs
And I am breathless without you
Still your hands
And still your heart
For still your face
Comes shining through
And all the morning glows anew
Still your soul
Still your mind
Still the fire of love is true
And I am breathless without you
