about

"July afternoon, she's white as the moon on the lakes of Bras d'Or - I've taken a bride, she's here by my side, and I can't want for more". That about sums it up.

lyrics

In a big wooden church
In a small steel town
on the edge of the sea
Dressed in a gown
and pressed in a suit
for all eyes to see
An occasion of hope
the opening scene
of life-long play
I've made up my mind
No question this time
forever I'll stay

Say you'll marry me, say you will
I'll move mountains to hold you
I'll be yours 'til the end of time
Feel my love all around you

July afternoon
She's white as the moon
on the lakes of Bras d'Or
I've taken a bride
She's here by my side
I can't want for more
It's taken some time
some laughin' some cryin'
but now I am sure
I look in your eyes
I give you my heart
I give you my soul

Say you'll marry me, say you will
I'll move mountains to hold you
I'll be yours 'til the end of time
Feel my love all around you

In some ancient language
lost and long extinct
in songs of whales
hidden in hieroglyphs, I think
there is a word - love
wrapped up in math and the missing link
there is a word - love

Say you'll marry me, say you will
I'll move mountains to hold you
I'll be yours 'til the end of time
Feel my love all around you
