A Walk in the Park

Outside

2022

words

lyrics & notes

Bonnie and Clyde escape to a park to enjoy being outside, but how long do they have?

There’s a place and it opens up just after dawn.
I’ll meet you by the exit gate.
Be there round eight. Don’t be late.
Let’s walk down that path where the animals all say “hello”
They don’t care ‘bout what we’ve done.
They’ll take the crumbs right from your palm.
Come out and play
Let’s make a day of it
Let’s take a walk in the park you and me in the sun
Take our secret path - it looks like a photograph
But don’t take any photographs
Let’s keep this all in our mind
Nothing that they could say
Could spoil this lovely day
No-one can take away this
You and me in the sun,
And they’ll never find out what we’ve done.
And no-one can know that we’re here.
We know how things get out of hand.
We know they wouldn’t understand the care we took, impossible choices we made.
We’re likely running out of time.
Let’s sit down here and feel the breeze.
Let’s spend what time we’ve left beneath the trees.
I can feel them getting closer.
I can feel them getting closer.
They won’t care but we’ve travelled so far from the dark.
I promised a beautiful ending for you and me
Promised you this will be more than a walk in the park.
Come out and play
Let’s make a day of it
Let’s take a walk in the park you and me in the sun
Take our secret path, it look like a photograph
But don’t take any photographs
Let’s just keep this all in our mind
Nothing that they could say
Could spoil this lovely day
No-one can take away this
You and me in the sun,
And they’ll never forgive what we’ve done.
