lyrics

When spring had carried me north
On winter’s dying breath
Just like its fathers’ before
We settled in this mill town

When you still believed in everything
Wasn’t it beautiful?
You stitched your heart to my sleeve
I wore it til you grew cold

When the leaves slowly change
When I can’t see your face
When I can’t settle down anymore
With you here

When blinding summer hit my face
Your garden shaded us
Oh moonless night and chilling rain
My joints would freeze with rust

When the lake lined red in the night
You were afraid to fall
A match strike caught in my palm
Your shout extinguished its call

When the leaves slowly change
When I can’t see your face
When I can’t settle down anymore
With you here

When you lowered me to the earth
My face pressed to the grass
Pocket my skeleton keys
Locking your weight to my chest

When lines are painted between
Our houses, even, odd
I’ll never cross them to track
White footprints into your room

When the leaves slowly change
When I can’t see your face
When I can’t settle down anymore
With you here
