Strawberry Letter 23 Lyrics

Hello, my love
I heard a kiss from you
Red magic satin playing near, too

All through the morning rain
I gaze - the sun doesn't shine -
Rainbows and waterfalls run through my mind

In the garden - I see west
Purple shower, bells and tea
Orange birds and river cousins dressed in green

Pretty music I hear - so happy
And loud - blue flower echo
From a cherry cloud

Feel sunshine sparkle pink and blue
Playgrounds will laugh
if you try to ask
Is it cool?, is it cool?

If you arrive and don't see me
I'm going to be with my baby
I am free - flying in her arms, over the sea

Stained window, yellow candy screen
See speakers of kite - with velvet roses diggin' freedom flight

A present from you - Strawberry letter 22
The music plays, I sit in for a few

Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh...

A present from you - Strawberry letter 22
The music plays, I sit in for a few

Ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh... ooh...

This song blows my mind!! Like so many tunes of this era, the combination melancholic beat and nonsensical lyrics is absolutely intoxicating. Acid Rock is truly a lost art there is nothing today can match the talent of that era.

SL23 has always been one of my favorite songs - ever! It reminds me so much of growing up in a small town in NH. It's such a happy song that has alot of meaning - what an intoxicating beat. Love it!!!

Since I heard this song on the radio in my JHS days,I've been trying to find out what this song is. I cannot forget the melancholic melody. Now I'm really happy to find out. I really love this song.
