April In Portugal
Jane Morgan Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like we never knew.
My head was in the clouds, My heart went crazy too,
And madly I said: "I love you."

Too soon I heard you say:
"This dream is for a day"
That's Portugal and love in April!
And when the showers fell,
Those tears I know so well,
They told me it was spring fooling me.

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like I never knew.
Then morning brought the rain,
And now my dream is through
But still my heart says "I love you."

This sad reality, To know it couldn't be,
That's Portugal and love in April!
The music and the wine convinced me you were mine,
But it was just the spring fooling me.

I found my April dream in Portugal with you
When we discovered romance, like I never knew.
Then morning brought the rain,




And now my dream is through
But still my heart says "I love you."
