about

Bruges, a town so often driven past by tourists eager to get somewhere else. A place full of good memories and beautiful things.

lyrics

Winter was colder than ever last year
Spring came so slowly, then summer was near
We hung up our overcoats when skies were clear
And read all our books about Bruges

And when we arrived there the sun was so high
The blue was the blue of a hot summer sky
And the books that we'd read hadn't told us a lie
And we fell in love with Bruges

Bruges in the summertime, stars in the night
Wine in the warm glow of soft candlelight
Bruges in the summertime feeling so right
Whispering sweet and low “lady, I love you” so
We will return when the memories fade
To the room in the town where the memories were made

There's bells in the towers, bands in the squares
Boats on canals and balloons at the fairs
Where we laughed away worries, kissed away cares
And sang out our song of Bruges

Cobbled street carriages, horsedrawn for two
Picnics and palaces, pictures to view
But nothing I see is as lovely as you
No, not all the beauty of Bruges

There's laughter and loving and living for now
Dreams that come true if you'll only allow
So I’ll make a promise, if you make a vow
To love me again in Bruges
