Brothers Johnson – 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


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

    On a rainy day the young man opens the 22nd love letters exchanged between he and his first love. He for sakes his friends on the playground to spend time with her ever though they laugh at his love sickness. He describes his feelings through visions of grandeur and e very thing seems to be a bright and beautiful, even this rainy gloomy day. He is in love and awe about every aspect of this girl even the stationary ' s art, (blue flower in a red tinted cloud). He finds that he is completely free from earthly matters in her presence and even just the thought of her. He is answering g the 22nd letter with a song which is letter 23 that's why only letter 22 is in the lyrics.
